The Fire Fighter heroes are setting back fires around Lakeside and around the Cedar fire. The winds have dropped down a lot and with Santa Ana wind gone and the on shore winds we are looking for buy morning that will help a lot and it should bring in cool moist air.
KUSI news is the best place for the fire info in the east county
KUSI had Duncan Hunter on the news buy phone found out he lost his home in the fire

Very, very sobering. Those people did nothing to deserve this.

Hey...been away from the computer at a meeting. I'm back. From the I10 overpass near my house I can now see flames from the SB fire. Looks to be the fire is wrapping itself around the ridge and heading up 38. Spect..can you confirm this. Was down to Bryant and 38 in Yucaipa earlier this afternoon [by the Mill Creek Ranger Stn,]and didn't see much...things have changed for the worse it looks like.

Anything happening on the SB scanner? I can't get on -- it's swamped. i.e. homes on fire, movements up on the mountain, etc.

That's scores (at least) of homes destroyed, right there.

I hope the eco-zombies will be made to pay the price for this. I am not saying they set any fires, anyone who did that should be made to understand that the death penalty=mercy killing, but I have no doubt, NO DOUBT, that their skewed views and the slavish attitude in which they are held contributed to the "near occasion" of this disaster.

It is time to end the junk science/psuedo religion/politically correct bullshit that is seriously threatening America.

Going to call it a night but will be back in the morning. Getting ready to watch the News at 10 on satellite out of LA.

Take care and hope you get some sleep -- will be saying prayers for your family and all of SoCal!

It's the yearly "feel sorry for Californians" spectacle. They have either an earthquake or flood or fire or landslide at least once a year it seems.

Did you hear they have now ordered mandatory evacuation of Highland and the fire has crossed 18 at the Cliffhangar headed for Lake Arrowhead? Winds there are 15-20 mph right now.

I hope you're being facetious.

I also hope you never have to go through a wildfire.

I'm from SoCal; I have relatives near 2 of the fires.

Quote It's the yearly "feel sorry for Californians" spectacle.

Get real...this is a major disaster. These are some of the worst fires in 100 years (for some of these areas)

Hope you don't have a disaster in your life...because with that kind of attitude I am sure you won't have many friends to help you out.
