    I can't believe the Wooley fire is at the edge of Malibu already. That's a lot of terrain it covered in a small time.

    These winds aren't even particularity bad, as Santa Ana winds go. This could be a whole lot worse.

    The good news, the Pacific Ocean is a reasonably good fire break.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Crazy live footage of the fire on the edge of Malibu. There wasn't any firefighters around until the last hour or so.

    It'll reach the ocean or PCH before that, it won't matter much.

    Jesus, the fire behavior...

    54000 acres in 12 hours - that’s over an acre a second. An acre is just slightly smaller than a football field.

    That video was brutal.

    It matters to the parts of LA and Ventura counties that aren't charred like Bruce Jenner's house I mean Caitlyn. I picked a bad week to be in TO. Fuck mass killings and tow wild fires.

    I just lost stuff...important stuff, and a heart wrenching loss, but just stuff. Ventura as a whole is doing just fine. The losses in Paradise is just heart breaking. A whole town wiped off the map and lives lost. That is truly a loss. If I ever get to whinny I give you all permission to kick me in the ass.

    This local fire has me stressed out. The friends we evacuated to's house was threatened, but they are out of the country. I know they have cats and a tortoise they think the world of, and I couldn't do anything g yo assure their safety, and it really bothered me. The Hill fire burned to the edge of their development, but the winds were (have been, we aren't done yet) in their favor. The winds are calm tonight, so hopefully forget the upper hand. I love living in southern California, but some place rainy and tropical is starting to look inviting.

    And from the Dick-Head-In Chief: " gross mismanagement of forests caused fires; remedy now or face loss of federal funds"

    I will refrain from saying more, as it would needlessly pollyass this gut wrenching situation.

    2018 Wildfire Season

    Hunkered down in the smoggy East Bay with hepa. Smoke is thicker but not affecting my lungs as much as summer Carr fire. Ozone level? Cooler temp? Particulates is through the roof.

    Gross mismanagement of the town caused this. Go to GoogleEarth and take a hard look at Paradise before the fire. There's no defensible space to be seen anywhere! The entire town was densely packed with fuel. Every yard is filled with trees and damn near every house has at least one tree touching an eave. That is just a disaster waiting to happen regardless of whether the fire starts in the forest or in town.

    I couldn't live with that sort of threat hanging over my head. I'm ok with living in a seismic zone on the lip of a supervolcano but I have my limits.
