Fires in San Diego

Not again! Hopefully it will be contained and won't be a repeat of 2007:

https://www.catforum.com/forum/47-lou...san-diego.html

They're evacuating many communities, over 20,000 people so far. We broke a 1979 record with our high temps today, and will break them for the rest of the week. Tomorrow and Thursday will be even hotter.

The fires are nowhere near me right now, but some of my coworkers had to leave work to go home and pack their families up.

WOW Marie! That is so scary...
We're very concerned about fires here this year too...

I remember three fires that happened in 2003. The Paradise Fire, Cedar Fire, and Otay Fire. The Cedar Fire was closest to me when I lived in San Diego. Yes doodlebug, this is early for San Diego fires. The fires usually happen later in the year when things are dryer. I hope everyone stays safe down there. I know some people who live in San Diego.

Whenever we get the Santa Ana's (high heat, low humidity, strong winds), we're on alert, but this weather is very unusual for this time of year. The fires from yesterday are under control, but we have more that started today. It's 90 degrees on the coast, but inland (where I live), it's already 100.6 and rising.

Do you have someplace to go and tote the girls to, if you have to evacuate?

So far, the fires are nowhere near me. But it's getting really bad. There's one big fire where nobody's even fighting it, no more resources. Homes are being destroyed. I think one of my best friends is going to lose her house (she's on vacation out of state).

Yikes...there's always huge fires down southern CA, like all the time in warmer weather.
Same here if you go East of the Cascades, as it might also apply to 10cat's, in the desert area.
I hope your place remains safe, too, Marie.
I love warm weather, but three digit-temps is a bit much for May!
Crossing my fingers and hoping things will be under better control there...
