My place in Santa Monica will be fine, but the smoke is pretty vile. As soon as the week wraps up, I am heading down to HB for the crisp beach air at my aunt and uncle's house. I love HB, wish I could live down there.

I'm amazed year after year of massive fires and they still have forests to burn. I wonder if they do any math on the value of aid from other states every year coming to help.

Regeneration of many of the forest in CA are dependent on fire for regeneration. Been that way for a long time. It's only when people build houses in them and then stop all the smaller fires they wind up with giant ones. After this they'll grow back, but so will the people building houses in them.

not joking about illegals, or hollywood assholes. homeless and dindus i dont mind. maybe when the hollywood fucks and their legumer employees are roasted, the dindus and homeless can take over their land.

In your Reeeee, you may have missed the reference to Pelosi joke in which she told everyone not a Democrat to leave the state this week.

Entire horizon looked like that, all in a matter of 3 hours. Was reported to be moving at over 100 yards a second.

Ugh, I think it was 2 years ago, but we had a shit load of fires nearby. Every night my eyes were burning, lungs felt like shit, and it smelled god awful.

This one is massive. It's going to be shitty for a while.

HB is nice, but fuck those oil derricks.

Ventura County FD is one of the best damn units in all of the US if not the world. They managed to evacuate 27k people in the dead of night without any power and zero news coverage, crazy stuff. First night only updates came via Twitter.

Decent map to give you an idea of scale between the 4 fires.

High winds with possible gusts up to 80mphs tonight and into tomorrow.

Kinda something I wonder about. I would have figured being that close to the ocean would give you all the water you need to put out just about any fire. Granted, getting it out of the ocean into a helicopter/plane seems a bit tricky

Some of the fires are MASSIVE, check the satellite images. The Thomas fire in Ventura is easily the length of entire city of LA and burned 65,000 acres so far. They also spread very fast. Some of the fires were reported to be advancing at 100 yards per MINUTE
