I am just sending this email hoping that everyone in California is fairing ok. I am in NJ and the news we are seeing does not appear to be good out there. Just hoping that everyone and their families and pets are ok. You are in my prayers.

I got fires to the south and north of me. No immediate danger right now but by morning, they might be right up my alley.
I live in a more urban area but my brother and parents live right up against a brush line.

I have fires just above me (I am by the base of big bear mountain) I'm OK for now other than lots and lots of smoke. Some of my friends and co-workers are under manditory evacuations from the Arrowhead fire so I may have a house guest or two. And the winds are just starting up as I write this. Hope it blows the smoke out. I am leaving early from work to check on my shelled babies at home.
Thanks you for your kind thoughts and prayers.:)

Thanks! The smoke in the air is worse than I have ever seen. We can see the flames but aren't in danger. It is raining ash, though! Our fires...Irvine,Tustin and Foothill Ranch in the canyons....are creeping pretty near. Just heard it was arson....someone set the fire at 3 points and it caught quickly. I won't even begin to tell what I think should happen to an arsonist like that....wouldn't be appropriate for a family forum.

The winds are picking up again so my prayers are with the firefighters and the evacuees!!!

Squirtle - I don't understand why anyone would ever do that either. Good Luck!!!

Seems like there have been just a constant stream of fires this year. So much being lost.

Just know we are thinking about all of you.

I live in San Diego, the fires are all around. The air is so bad so my tortoise is stuck inside for a while making laps in the living room!

we have to remember too that southern california plant communities have evolved to burn periodically. it restores the nutrient content of the soil for the next season. i hope everyone's home is safe and out of harms way and of course arson is a terrible crime. but sometimes these fires start naturally and can be a positive thing for wild areas

there are some resources for people on craigslist if you need someone to help take care of your pets for a little while. there is even a SoCal Fire Forum on CL
