Fire

Right now the fires are out of control here in Southern California. I live about 10 miles from one of the main fires, here in Orange County. It would have to jump a main freeway to get to us.

The air quality is awful right now. It’s all smokey and dusty.I took Angry Toddler to preschool this morning and they are keeping the students inside. Angry Toddler has asthma and this would not been good for him.

It was really crazy at work last night. We had alot of power transformers go down, which led to signals and power going down. There was like an orange haze over the sky, it was quite scary.

Everyone was having major allergy and sinus problems last night also. I hid most of the night in the building. I hope I can hide in there tonight. I’m going to bring my inhaler just in case, I actually have to work.

Alot of people, I know have been evacuated from their homes. I hope that they can return to their homes soon. Apparently, the fires near my home were set by an arsonist. Some people are soo stupid.

My thoughts go out to the people affected by these fires.

The Santiago fire especially has been very scary for me, at it's closest it was about 1/4 mile at the most from my house, before it shifted south to the Foothill Ranch area. While I'm glad it's away from me, I know what those people are going through now, and I really hope everything turns out well for them. I can't believe that it was arson, it just makes me incredibly angry...

That is really scary. Living here on the Gulf of Mexico, I bet I know this same type of fear...when you're forced to evacuate your home, you may not have a home to return to.Glad it sounds like you won't have to deal with an evacuation. Hope the fires come under control soon.
