Any southern CA people here?
I hope you and all your loved ones are safe! I am watching a live feed from San Diego and it is bringing back memories from the last big fires that were there. I talked to some old neighbors from Vista and unfortunately one of their parents lost a home in the Ramona area. From what I am seeing on here, it is worse than the fires from a few years ago. I always hated those Santa Ana winds, they were so dry and hot.

I will be praying for the winds to stop and the rain to start asap!

We are okay. I woke up to a fine layer of ash and that eerie smoky sky. It's also been very windy which isn't helping anything. Right now it's very smoky looking outside and the wind seems a little calmer.

Hope everyone else is okay!

I'm in San Diego. Its a bit crazy. But at least the sky is orange like last time, but they are saying its worst than the Cedar fire of 4 years ago. a bunch of people at work are being evacuated. The air is soo terrible here. my car is ashy. We just have a skeleton crew here. My work is downtown and my co-workers are offering their homes to each other. its a bit sad bc people here lost their homes last time. and more people are getting evacuated again. so i hope no one loses their home this time. my work has a check in so we know everyone is safe and accounted for.

We evacuated. Luckily we got a room at a downtown hotel and a friend was able to take our dog. Hopefully the fire and the looters will both miss our house.

I did bring my Options.

Thanks, it's really bad! There is ash all of the place and I have been sneezing like crazy!
Plus, I wear contacts, so my eyes hurt too!
