Food for thought for our firemen and women - not only do they do their best trying to extinguish these blazes, they must protect themselves from falling into holes, crevices, and any other unlevel area but they are up against snakes, coyotes, and I don't doubt a few bobcat along the way.. those hills are full of wildlife.

For my friends who live north of me, you might want to consider getting one of those fabric masks that are worn very often in the busy streets of asia (and Michael Jackson). It will help you cut back on your daily intake of hash... errr I mean ash.

You know whats weird about all these fires? There is/was one burning at Camp Pendleton not too far away from me. I havent seen any smoke on the horizon at all

Speaking of Fireperson's hazards, at Camp Pendleton, firefighters could not even approach the flames because of nearby unexploded ammunition shells

It's awful, and I live pretty far from the fires. At least 250 homes are gone. The ash is everywhere in little piles all over my yard and car, and when the sun does show through the smoke where I live, it's reddish-orange. The winds aren't strong where I live, but they're bad where the fires are. The whole house smells like smoke because my kitchen window is open an inch (cords coming through the screen prevent it closing all the way), and my dog door doesn't have a flap.

Yuck.

Ah crap... another fire just broke out in my neighboorhood in San Diego! Part of the 15 is currently shut down right now and we're exp[eriencing the same stuff as everyone else mentioned above. I went to grab my camera to get some footage for news, but my battaries are dead They're charging right now so possibly pictures later

Update: 80,000 acres have burned so far...

Oh shit. My friend's dad's house in Blue Jay, up near Lake Arrowhead, may be next.

Cleasai, how're you doing?

I hope you all stay safe. I think the masks are a good idea.

Char and I went to breakfast near Cal State Fullerton - the wind was so bad this morning; I parked the car and by the time we ran into the restaurant, Char's white blouse was now speckled gray with all of the flying ashes....
