    3000 Acre Fire near Santa Ysabel/Ramona


    The East County SD fire near Ramona is up to 3000 acres and growing. The smoke is getting to be fairly bad in La Jolla, over 40 miles to the west

    We may end up having a Burnt Pie Ride in November

    I feel so badly for the people whose homes and businesses are threatened and all the little animals. I hate when this happens out here and it seems to be happening so much. I thought everything that could be burnt was gone over the last few years of fires.

    I was on Shelter Island an hour ago and the smoke was so bad I could barely see downtown.

    Yup, there's a huge smokey haze from the fire all the way ESE to the coast and beyond. Evidently, this area was untouched by the big fires four years ago, so there's plenty to burn in that area.

    I'm up in Orange, and can see flames from my place of the Irvine area fire.

    Gotta love SoCal, huh?

    The inside of my apartment smells of smoke, and I'm nowhere near any of the many fires in SD county that are burning with 0% containment. Hope those of you who are further east in the county are okay.

    How is it where you're at? People in Rancho Bernardo got evacuated. That's in between us. People losing homes.

    I live in UTC and the sun's pretty orange from the smoke. Area north of SR-56 and east of I-5 are being evacuated (http://www.10news.com/news/14388572/detail.html). That's an area where a lot of ppl are moving to/living in these days.

    I'm home from work. A fine ash definitely is falling from the sky around UTC/La Jolla. Not a huge amount, but definitely some falling. Our institute is closed. Not just optional work, as during the Cedar Fire four years ago. Closed as in go home unless you have to be in for a few minutes to shut down any experiments in progress. Only security is to stay around. My prof demanded we all go home, even if we were in just for paperwork.

    Same here. My company is asking everyone to work from home. The ambient light at home is quite orange; like in a sunset.

    I didn't go to work today, but from what I was told it is fairly smoky at work (Mira Mesa; just 1 freeway exit north).

    I have no clue what to do today. Just sit around, I guess.

    If you were hard core you'd do some Mt. Soledad repeats. What's a little smoke?

    My parents live in PQ. Dad and the cat had to evacuate. Mom is visiting relatives in Illinois, and going a little batty. I have friends in Poway, RB, Escondido, San Marcos and Ramona that also evacuated. It is tough living 120 miles away. Not much work is getting done at my desk today...

    On the news, they just reported one thousand fire engines on the way to the area.
