Please check in... the wildfires look ferocious and I'd like to know everyone is safe! :wildone:
The fires have spread signficantly over the past 24-48 hours. They cover several cities and certain areas are being evacuated. I am in the San Gabriel Valley and we just started getting ash floating through the air, but those that live about 20-30 miles West, have been living in this thick smoke for awhile now. It is only 5% contained, so who knows how what it will take to get things under control. Such a shame.
No fires near here!
We are a safe distance away -- it's absolutely fearsome to see the huge clouds of smoke, and yesterday they combined with massive thunderheads because of the heat and slight increase in humidity. Today they are worried about dry lightening and winds.
I know our town is still edgy from last November's wildfire that came through our town. It's just something you never really forget.
Marcie? How are you and Syd?
