OMG Fire! (with pics)

So like the fire is pretty close, probably a bit over a mile away rom my house at this point.

The smoke outside is way thick so I have the kids inside.

I've lived in the area for 35 years and have never seen anything like this.






I'm not real worried though, the fire would have to cross 2 major streets, a concrete river and about 1000 houses to get to where we live.

Re: OMG Fire! (with pics)

anyways, i hope everything is taken care of. watch out for hot embers (sp) landing on your roof.

I have to say I think I would be worried if it was that close, but I guess you Californians are used to it by now.

Re: OMG Fire! (with pics)

its on the news here, they say its only 5% contained and with the high winds and how dry it is in CA it doesn't look like they will have it contained any time soon.
