Hi all, So far over 100,000 acers have burned, and 250,000 people have had to flee their homes, and that in San Diego County alone. Sure some TC people here have had to move out from home.

Thanks for your thoughts..

H2O

I believe Bosco is in the Escondido area which is safe at the moment but sandwiched between two fires; Fallbrook on the north and San Pasqual/Rancho Bernardo on the south. There is also a fire in the Coronado hills of San Marcos which is on Escondido's western border. I was in downtown Escondido about two hours ago and it is full of smoke from the San Pasqual/Rancho Bernardo fires. It's a bit surreal; looking south the sky is red/brown and generally scary, looking north the sky is crystal clear and serene for about 10-15 miles and then more smoke - but not as much from what I can see - in Fallbrook. At any rate, depending on where in Escondido he resides it's either crystal clear and pleasant (aside from the fires it's a very nice day) or he's dealing with a lot of rather uncomfortable smoke. To my knowledge there have been no evacuations in Escondido. The fires are generally moving west and there is serious speculation that they may burn to the sea. Solana Beach and parts of Del Mar have been asked to evacuate.

The sky is red and ash is falling everywhere like 4 years ago, but worse. Smells like bunt ass outside and it's hard to breathe. No fun.

What hurricanes and flooding are to the Gulf Coast, santa ana winds and fire are to So. California. Earthquakes are doo-doo compared to wild fires! What we need right now is a good tsunami.

I just spoke with Missus Bosko. I must say I was quite surprised that the phone lines were up let alone someone picking it up on the other end!! You know how you make a phone call sometimes and YOU are the one that is surprised and starteld when someone says "hey"!?
Bosko is watering the lawn, monstera deliciosa, banana trees, hibiscus and the roof. So far, no mandatory evac for them.

Erik the Red, fingers and toes crossed, a couple "wallet, watch spectical, testicals" action.

Everyone do a rain dance.

Hello all, wasn't there a previous post here from a couple of years back regarding this?!

We are OK, fortunately the Santana wind is at our back/s and the fire is just down the road. Lost phone and electrical service earlier, electrical is back for now, neighbors are gone. Mr NoNaMe the phone lines ARE down but you called the business phone, we are always ready for business!
Mason and I went down to the super market, watching the palms bending in the wind and all the smoke was like living in a black and white war movie.
Thanks so much for everyone's concern, here's a couple of photos from earlier today.

Everyone else out there please take care of yourselves,

Bosko

A shout to all of you down south, get the pump into the pool, aim the hose at the house! Hope you all just have to say how close it came and nothing else!

Stay safe out there ohana!

When looking at those pics I couldn't help but think about the irony that maybe several Walgreens would burn down and we could build tiki bars in their places.

My Mom evacuated 2 days ago. She is in the Wildcat Canyon by Barona in Lakeside. She heard there is fire in her canyon, so won't know for some time as to if she does or doesn't have her home. It is so sad indeed for all of these people, many of whom had just recently recovered and were rebuilding from the 2003 fires. In the Cedar fire, people all around her lost their homes, some people died trying to get out and many animals were lost. Word is that this year it is worse as the winds are stronger. Then there is the impending doom of mudslides in the winter.
