Oh they must have lived in the Laguna Summit apts in Laguna Niguel with my boys.
Oh I just start yapping and then go off in my own world.
I started out trying to make the distinction between houses "going up" (flammable with sticks in the air) and inventory houses, (those that are done.)
But once I got going i forgot to answer the original question which you have now done.:bang:
News conference: the fire that started on the La Jolla reservation this morning has already grown to 3,000 acres and is establishing itself on Palomar Mountain.
Due to the decreased humidity even from yesterday, the "burnability factor" of all the fires is extremely high, making the fires more dangerous and harder to contain.
Oh, goodness, it just gets worse.
Prayers to all the firefighters.
Watching those helicopers on Fox .........what heroes they are.
So windy, smokey.........Amazing.....dippng into the water, heading out.
Huggs for the Blackhawks.........
You are posting while driving, no? I'm very impressed (and concerned)!
An elderly person died this morning (I think at Escondido High School) when his assisted living facility had to evacuate, and they placed him in the gym with no air conditioning.
Two county hospitals have been evacuated.
I'll bet Love Mama's been evacuated- inland Del Mar and La Jolla are out of their homes.
That's the one. I pass it every morning to and from work.
No! of course I am not driving!
This is all so unusual. San Diego usually has some wildfires - but nothing like this. It's a combination of a huge lack of rainfall and dryer than usual weather, drying out all the underbrush, and a very unusual Santa Ana - lasting for multiple days (normally it's just one), and very strong. Put that together, and the slightest spark creates a wildfire.
The people who talk about why we live in a wildfire zone then get upset by fires - this normally isn't a wildfire zone. Santa Anas are pushing a normal little brushfire that normally would char some wild acres and be easily put out when it got to houses, into an enourmous conflaguration that cannot be stopped, moving fast, jumping 10 lane freeways, uncontrollable.
That's where 2 of my boys USED to live. Did your coworker get ripped off by the owners of the apts too? They promised my kids 28 days in a hotel and then pulled the rug after about 10.

550,000 people ordered evacuated.
If you take the combined populations of three evacuated cities- Rancho Bernardo, Ramona and Fallbrook, that is absolutely huge!

No, I wasn't inquiring about fire danger there, I now it's okay. What concerned me was that I knew JBean had business dealings in that area.
OT- Isn't Yucaipa in northern Los Angeles? If so, my former in-laws had an aunt and uncle who lived there. I don't remember it as being a very nice place to live.
