No problems here in the south bay, where I'm at, other than 8% humidity. It's so dry I cannot believe it. I feel like I'm in Vegas or in the desert somewhere, not 3 miles from the beach. Yuck.

Orange County I do believe


Luckily I don't have to leave the house for work, so I don't have to go out into the smoke-filled air. Maddy's school has already called tonight with their pre-recorded message about taking the proper precautions tomorrow/this week for the students.

Winds winds go away, we'd rather have rain any day. :Pray:

I took some pictures through my window





this one just looks like it's windy, but you can see that the neighbor's fence has been knocked down

Although I don't wish to sound like I'm making light of this subject, from a Midwestern POV, a lot of us wonder why anyone would live in So. Cal. To us, it always sounds like you're constantly one earthquake, mudslide, and forest fire away from losing everything.

One dead. They say it was a broken powerline. Not better, but at least it wasn't again some arsonists if this info is right.

I live behind the Orange Curtain. It's a somewhat derogatory name for good old conservative OC.

It's such a beautiful place, I could never deal with that fear. I hope the fires will end today.

The fires will most likely burn all week. These aren't structure fires, with a defined supply of fuel. The winds carry embers and can set new fires 1/2 mile away. Most of the fires aren't even partially contained yet, and that may take several days to a week. A few years ago, some fires burned for months. They were in remote areas, but even the huge Big Bear fires burned for at least a month. Once the wind dies down, which may not happen until Tuesday, the crews can get the fires contained.

This will go on for several days.
