Hi,

thanks for posting. I'm in Florida right now, but I'm in touch with my friends in SD. The fires are about 25 miles north and 15 miles southeast from where I live. The evacuation in Del Mar is because the Santa Ana winds that go west. We expected those fires to happen, it's been extremely dry for months and the last drops we got a week-end ago were not enough to prevent fires like this.

As for me, I may have difficulty flying back like 3 years ago when the airport was closed to due ash falling from the skies, we shall see. My dog is safe so far.

Got a call from my brother late this afternoon.  There is a voluntary evacuation in San Diego in effect which may go to manditory.  He said it went from 2 fire storm areas to 8 overnight.  He and wife are on the way east to a shelter area.  Bad situation...say mantras the winds ( primary cause of the rapid spread) will subside, and everyone can return home and find them intact.

Let's be clear...................................SAN DIEGO IS ON FIRE! 2/3 of the city has been evacuated and still more to come.  There are currently 8 fires randomly burning around the county.  This shit is CRAZY!

Anyone heard from sdcabincrew74 ?

I remember the hills above Carlsbad, where I lived about 10 years ago, being on fire.

Pretty damn scary, not to mention bad for those with respiratory illnesses.

Take care all of you guys down in the Southland.

bush and cheney started the fires .  Why wasnt FEMA more prepared for this disaster? People who live in certain parts of the world take certain risks. If you live on the Gulf Coast you know hurricanes might destroy your property,if you live in Socal you have fires,earthquakes,and landslides to worry about. I pray we dont have to bail out homeowners who knew the risks before they settled here.

Fire Update:

Here is a map that shows where all of the fires are.  Most major freeways are closed and everyone has been asked to stay home whether they are affected or not as they want us to stay off of the freeways so evacuee's can have a way out.

It's black outside and smells like soot and is raining ash.  It ain't looking good as winds are up to 70 miles per hour in the mountains.

Guys, that's really scary.  I didn't realize that there was all that much growth to burn since the fires in '03 and '05.  Are they in different places this time?  From the pics I've seen, it looks like a lot of brush / small trees that are burning, but it's hard to tell.  I would have thought multi-lane highways would stop the fire somewhat, or at least slow it.  We're a bit dry over here on the East coast, but nowhere near as bad off as you guys are.  Be careful and take care.

The fires have jumped freeways, it's totally random.  Densely populated areas have been drastically affected, MANY homes have been burned in areas of Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Ramona and it's travelling fast into Chula Vista.

Power outages all over the county, limited cell phone useage and limited freeway access.

So far, people in Hillcrest, Normal Heights, Downtown area are fine.  It would have to be a really creative fire to get to us, but shit, who knew it would do what it has up to this point.  Watch the news, it's all we can do.  I myself feel fairly safe where I am.

It's going to be in the 100's today with very high winds.  Stay indoors, limit activity and turn on your A/C if you have it to filter out the bad shit.

sorry Matty,but the housing debacle in Socal is very serious. Many people who are on the verge of BK are hoping the wind blows their way and insurance bails them out. Just make sure you grab your computer and family pics,everything else can be replaced. I am really bummed, cause San Diego is the most beautiful city in the US and I hope no one is harmed.
Might be time to buy some manufactured housing stocks. This works after hurricanes in Gulf Coast,but I dont know if many in Socal would stoop this low.
I know fucking Bush had something to do with this

Jack,

Knock it off already. This isn't a thread about Bush and neither is it a thread about the stock market. Why do you have to do this to every single thread you post in lately?

People are worried about their lives, their livelihoods and the roof over their head. Why can't you send them your best wishes and leave it at that?

Consider yourself warned, Jack. Enough is enough already.

Jack, Ann's already given you a warning so I don't have to do that although I would have.

I will just add that you might give some thought to how automatically you inject the Clintons or in this case some other names and insensitive responses into almost any discussion. It pretty much never moves a subject forward. In situations such as this your remarks are irrelevant and thoughtless when the matter at hand is people's lives and homes in grave danger.

Your comments come off as cheap shots, unfeeling and infuriating.

Life is too short under the best of circumstances, Jack. Do you really want to live out your years with the compassion and other emotions I believe you have within you, so encrusted over that all you can do indulge yourself in spouting this kind of stuff? -- instead of actually engaging members in more varied ways?

And that is not a rhetorical question.

Hope you guys will all be safe and that the fire stops soon, I was not aware of it till this thread but then I just saw it on TV, looks fierce & so many homes are lost already. Stay safe.

Tommy if I can be of any assistance in helping you locate your parents, please send me a PM.  Depending on what area they live in, most people are at Qualcomm Stadium.

Contact the American Red Cross, they are keeping records of everyone.

Fires are still raging, MANY more evacuations and reverse 911 calls going out to over 2,000 people and they say more to come.

Wish I had better news to report.  Moe and I are packed and ready to go if we need to.

I agree with you Ann. Jack's comments weren't well placed. However, I should mention that he brings up a vaild issue that everyone in the US should consider. We saw the dismal response of our government after Hurrican Katrina. I just don't know how much we can rely on federal help in any crisis. So during this crisis (in America or elsewhere), I'll make the suggestion that I do during every other crisis:

If you haven't taken the time to make preparations for an emergency situation, the end result could leave you stranded and homeless, surrounded by flood or fire. Prepare an emergency kit and plans today, BEFORE you find yourself in an emergency situation.

(In ohio where we mainly worry about the occassional blizzard or local flooding, I have an emergency kit not only in the house; but also another in the car (with blankets and a shovel), along with a plan of where to meet up with friends and family.)

Best wishes to everyone in Cali!
May the rains come, the winds diminish, and the fires dampen
to save you, your loved ones and your homes.

Tommy, I'm glad to know your folks are ok.

BUT your comments to Jack and the language you used are absolutely unacceptable. Your concerns about your parents do not excuse that kind of a rant here. The firestorm in this thread stops right here. If you have a complaint about him send it to the moderators.

Consider yourself warned.

Tommy,

I understand you're having a terrible day today, but that doesn't excuse you calling Jack names. I want you to read our Welcome Thread and pay particular attention to our posting guidelines and Time Out policy.

Jack was warned about what he posted - and now I'm warning you. We don't tolerate personal attacks here. You're only getting a warning this time, please don't let there be a next time.

And I truly am sorry you're having such a terrible birthday, and I hope your family is ok.

Ann

I just recieved an email from a friend who resides in San diego... he was evacuated on sunday evening... I called his mom who lives in Prattville, AL to check on him so she must have sent word to him to follow up with me... his home is gone.... it burned down in 2003 or 2004 he rebuilt and now everything is gone again. He wrote he would let me know when he will be returning back to Bama... it looks like I'll have a house guest for awhile... now I'll have to clean house and arrange pathways large enough for a wheel-chair... he's been poz since 1987 and has been wheel chair bound for 10 years now... he just thinks of this as a set back... I'm sure he will probally move back for some reason he likes it out there... I'm thinking of everyone and wishing them all well in California...
