That's one thing I'm not looking forward to doing, boling water and breaking out my Katyden water filter pump.

East Valley water is just north of us

It’s not looking good for that area Droopy lives in the area just off the 94 just north of Lyons valley rd across the road from a wildlife area that.
KUSI news has the area on the TV now looks like the no homes lost at this time a lot of back fires have been set to hold back the fires. Stopped just south of the Daily ranch the DFG how has and has not jumped the 94 at this time Looks like the some heroes are getting back for some much needed R&R in that area.

I hate Microsoft. The only Strawberry Peak it can pull up is nowhere near hwy 18 -- it's pulling up one north of Pasadena!

FFs bracing for Strawberry Peak to be overun by fire. Public safety, Ham and commercial repeaters will go down if so.

Since I'm keeping the other thread as news-only, I want to beg a nice moderator or someone to please change the date on the news-only thread to the 28th, if they could...?

Pretty please, with sugar on top?

According to KUSI (which has had great coverage, better than any of the cable news or networks), its now burning like hell up in the Cleveland National Forest, in largely unreacable (by land) areas.. headed north. There's a lot of open land up there and lots to burn.

Please continue to issue reports from San Diego area. I have relatives living on a hillside just east of Lake Henshaw. The phone system is out in the entire area, including Santa Ysabel and Julian. Is the power out also? They might not be able to use their well in that case. I expect they may go to a center at Julian High School or even go down to Borrego Springs after they find a place for their animals.

No. It's frustrating. All I've heard, since the fire jumped 18, is that it was falling back on the Lake Gregory area. None of the news stations show any maps of the current fire area.

Our old next door neighbor called us from San Diego at 9:00 PM. The winds have shifted and our old neighborhood south of Mission Gorge Road that was evacuted last night is now considered safe.

At least for tonight, we still own a San Diego house.

fire is in the trees on both sides of Strawberry Peak....advising to send sheriffs to Twin Peaks and give one last warning to leave for holdouts....

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.

Is this suppose to be funny???

I'm from Texas and have never been to southern California so I have a question. Is the burning area mostly grass or wooded? I've always pictured it as mostly grass.

The news coverage is pretty sparse. I guess if Koby Bryant or Scott Peterson were the fire starters they would be all over it. grrrrr.

Just west of Lake arrowhead

Does that mean the fire crossed 189? Is Strawberry Peak north or south of 189?

There's a variety of different fuels for the fire.

In the area where the Grand Prix fire burned, the vast majority of fire fuel was scrub brush - white sage, chapparal, cactus, yucca.

In the area of the Old Waterman fire (Crestline), it's pine and oak trees, grasses, scrub brush.

In the San Diego area, it's black sage, paciwi, oak trees, wild grasses.

In the Simi Valley area, it's a mix of all of the above, plus some odd coastal plants and some cedar.

It's mostly dry shrub like semi arid desert plants.
