Wildfires in LA and So Cal

Looks like it's happening inside the city. Hoping it burns itself out before it hits the freeway.

Looks like the Getty is covered in smoke. Hope it remains safe. One of my favorite museums.

Let people know you are safe and well:

Serious and silly question here.

Do film crews beyond the news, and from the movie industry, try and capture footage to use in future films?

Because that is some apocalyptic looking shit going down.

We had unusual amount of rain a few months ago which caused a lot of growth and then of course no rain and just heat which caused it all to dry up, and as soon as the winds kick up its game over. Ventura is probably getting hit the hardest, we have friends staying with us that got evacuated. Part of the deal living here. No snow or crazy cold, no humidity that makes you want to kill yourself. No tornadoes, no floods from a crazy river. Everywhere you go there's something that sucks but we have a lot more good things than most.

I live at Edwards AFB near Lancaster and my wife goes to see UCLA neurologists once every 2-3 months. We drive the 405 each time we have an appointment and get off on Wilshire.

That's absolutely crazy what it looks like right now.

I remember the big fire we had down here in SD in the early 2000's.

You'd wake up in the morning and the and sky would be orange and grey. Walk outside and your car would be covered in ash.

As scary as that fire looks - it's just brush. There's very few trees in the Sepulveda pass. Still I wouldn't want to drive past it on a bike or convertible.

The people who lose their houses usually butt up against a wild canyon. Fire is always a danger for them. Like most LA residents, I am surrounded by either endless city or ocean.

Most wildland fires that I have been on have been started by dry lightning strikes in the fall..(here in Ca anyway). Yes there are the occasional campfires or even arsonists but most are caused by dry lightning. Having said that, the recent ones in NorCal and possibly the ones in SoCal today could be the combo of wind causing tree limbs to land on high voltage lines somewhere and starting a "wind/fire event" that is impossible to control or stop until the winds die down and resources get gathered to then swing in and mop up before high temps and more wind come to play again. Some of the scientists researching the recent Santa Rosa and Napa fires are saying at times the fire was moving well over 100 MPH.

I'm in Orange County at the moment and went for a run on the beach today. I think I can actually see smoke rising from the fires up to the north.

Southern California has had the most rain in the past 100 years than any century in history (and it's not much). It's an arid desert that's been lucky on this short-term roll of the dice and millions of people moved there. There have been two mega-droughts in the past 500 years in SoCal, one of which lasted 250 years. It seems things are moving back to the mean. Sucking the Colorado dry is only a band-aid.

Fallbrook (San Diego area) fire started today, and is already over 2500 acres burned. Drove through the smoke on the way to LA today - gonna be a crazy couple days until the Santa Anas calm down.

Coastal San Diego has single digit humidity right now, which is crazy...
