    They just interpted the TV with a news break to sy it has gotten worse. God help those people. One lady at work was telling me her daughter was called by the emrgency folks to say that they suggested a volentary evacuation. I sure hope everyone heeds this suggestion and doesn't wait until the last minute. Traffic is awful out there and to wait is not a good idea!

    If your out there please be safe and not silly - go while you can! [​IMG]
  10. My youngest son has marine electonics convention in San Deigo next week. I hope everthing works out and they get the fires under control.

    I know he's looking forward to it. Kind of a vacation for him.

    The community that Kaela and I live in was put on mandatory evacuation last night. It was a scary site. The canyon north of us was glowing with flames and embers as were the hills to the east of us (Poway/Scripps Ranch). Early this morning we were downgraded to voluntary evacuation, but it is still hard to get comfy with so many people and friends having to evacuate and relocate. Our prayers go out to those families affected by the fires. Even here at work in Chula Vista the smoke in the air is choking and the ground is littered with ash. This is a very surreal situation. There are over 250,000 evacuees in SD County and the site of all the tents and RV's at Qualcomm Stadium brings about an unsettling feeling in my stomach.

    That's the word as of now. The news mentioned that 10 Charger players and staff had to evacuate some of their multi-million dollar homes. I was here for the Cedar fire 4 years ago this month and it was bad. But the 8 fires that have been burning in SD County since Sunday evening has trumped the Cedar fire. It is very scary out here right now...and wiiiiindy!
  14. yeah, im in orange county i work in irvine and am very close to the santiago fire that is up to 18000 acres! half the people i know have had to evacuate! lots of people have to work to pay the rediculous costs of living out here and dont have a choice but to work most everyday(like tradesmen), very hard to do when you dont have a home to go to, and you cant breath to easy. it is very scary and disheartening. the one great thing is to see these usually upity people so very close and communal. god bless america! we will get through this!

    This is getting reminiscient of Katrina. DeJack and others from the area, please stay safe.

    Maybe it's time to consider that "we all send one dollar" idea I had for anyone that we deem needs it, just in case?
