The winds are like a blacksmith's bellows. When they're going, which they have been, it gets the fire going again.

    BTW, when I was at the top of Woolsey I think (it's unmarked up there mostly but it's that canyon the sign is pointing to), I met a gangbanger up there who was in a pre-fab home community quite vulnerable about 100 yards from this burn site (infinitely closer than the homes in the shot). While everyone evacuated because of the clear risk, he stayed because there were a couple elderly people there who had just had surgery. A public spirited, good fellow. We were both happy to have someone to talk to about it. Friendly. He was taking pictures with his phone like I was and described the evening before. He said that the flames had gotten high as the phone poles and a helicopter came in and dropped the water and it was out where the water hit. You see what it looked like that morning after as we spoke.

    Anyway, that smoke alone is a bitch to breathe after a short while. Woke me up the night before and I had to drive away for a time.

    This is still far from over. And like I said, other places got it far, far worse. But this is generally my area.
    Thanks for sharing. That’s pretty scary to have that happening so close. Man.

    Sorry for hijacking the thread Rondo.
