ugh. TW was evacuated for 48 hours and is now home hoping not to get evacuated again. The air here is f*ing horrible and the news is totally confusing. Please do wish us luck, all. Thanks!

Thanks!

*I* am fine (along with my lovely lady-friend, my dog and my 3 chickens) for now at least, but this sh*t, for anyone not on the ground here is absolutely horrible.

The air is like a swamp evaporating into charcoal capable of causing heart attacks in infants, the firefighters are completely spent on no sleep for at least two days, fire personnel are spread so, so, so thin, etc. And we are *lucky* -- the fire came to the end of my street, less than a block away. New fires are popping up every couple hours. We are getting used to watching like, bi-planes, dumping water on them. Last night we stopped the car and watched one fire that was like the way a child imagines a lava flow. Just completely huge and orange and fluid and unstoppable.

Sigh. All part of living in So-Cal, but a whole lot more scary than usual.

TW

Hi, mtd...

I appreciate your concern, but I think you got me mixed up with someone else in chat the other night. I'm pretty safe up here in North Dakota.

Thanks a lot, though. It feels good to know that people are thinking about me (sorry if you've been worried on my account).

Bryan

I dont want to sound harsh but, Thease fires happen every year and they are a problem only because the brush and fuel for the fires has ben alowed to acumulatein the hills . People build holmes in thease areas where the fires are a natural part or the egosystem . They deed to build fire breaks around there houses and remove flamible brush from the aria .
I am saying this as a former USFS Firefighter and a former Californian

Uh, its a little more complicated than that. My own neighborhood is a hundred years old. Fire is definitely a fact of life here, but overzealous development in fire-prone areas is not the sole problem.

Not to sound harsh either but I am getting sick of everyone looking for *someone* to blame. (Not that that is what you were doing OM).....from Bush, to Schwarzenegger, to Malibu celebrities, to smokers, and no sh*t - one jerk even proposed terrorism.

PS. Wherever you all are, please breathe for me -- its almost impossible to do here. Ugh.

Hi,

Look, I lived in California more than three decades before moving here. Between fires and mudslides, someone's always passing blame around. TW, I'm thankful you and yours are still okay, and I know the breathing and the air both suck right now. I've been close enough to fires myself to have an idea how bad it can be (less than a mile away from Cazadero fire in 1978, I think, and a few miles from the one in the Berkeley hills sometime in the early 80s).
Stay calm, and best wishes.

Ed

TW the thing you mentioned about some one suggesting terrorism. was reported by fox news to come from a three day old threat that a newspaper reporter had found. the only problem was this threat was like from 2003 and the threat did not even mention California. and was pretty well proven to be a fake.

Just another example of great reporting from FOX
