    Being from So Cal and having so many wildfires around us it never numbs the pain of loosing the heros that are out there...so very very sad for the firefighters and their loved ones. I was surprised to hear there are 400 people trapped in an RV park as the only road out is blocked by flames...if they can't stop the fire, how are they going to get them out of there? I know they are saying that due to the high winds the aircraft dumping water is having a difficult time, wonder if the wind is to high to send in some type of aircraft to get the 400 folks that are stranded out of there. So scary!!

    Aww, how awful.

    They died being hero's, about the only consolation.
    It is what they do, they know the risks but that is heartbreaking.

    Paperdoll.. I was going to go ride my bike. Do you think the air down here is so bad that i shouldn't go? It is a bit smokey here, but it just seems we are far enough away. What is it like up by you? maybe I will go up in Aliso Woods instead?
    What do you think?

    Yeah it is pretty smokey down here too..I guess bike riding is not such a good idea. I don't want to suck all that stuff in my lungs.
    I didn't realize there was ash on my car until I went to leave the office. I bet you have it up there too.

    My car is so dirty that ashes would go unnoticed... I really do see the smoke, it's ugly and it's getting worse... I HATE THIS STUFF!!!!

    You'll see the ashes on your windows.
