Back in 2003 when I worked in T.O., we lived in Simi Valley. A big fire threatened Simi, and we were just getting in the car to evacuate when they cancelled the order. Our house backed on to the Reagan Library grounds, and the Library was between us and the fire; it had just reached Tierra Rejada.

When it reached that point, the sky became black with helicopters flying over to dump water. We feel that our location helped us, since the Library and its records, etc., were in danger. I’ve been frightened a lot over the years, but the fire thing... terrifying.

Well, it may very well be that this was set by human hands, but if you believe that God is in control, then God is allowing these things to occur.

Isaiah 45:5-7
5 I am the Lord, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me,
6 so that from the rising of the sun
to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
7 I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the Lord, do all these things.

In short, The Lord takes 'credit' for all things (there's multiple passages for this, too, not just this one). God is either in complete control, or he is not. If not, then he's not God if anything can thwart him.

Minnesota has already paid the price once. Hope it never happens again.

I toured the Getty Museum three years ago.

I was only one foot away from this $54 million Van Gogh painting, Irises. Then I heard, Sir, please back up. I did.

Totally inappropriate place to post that—very insensitive to FREEPERS who live there or have family there...

Well, glad you are not God. Seems that you view California as this monolithic patch of land filled with politically homogeneous people...It is not; there are many conservatives located throughout.*** Seriously, I highly doubt God was punishing Sonoma County specifically yet leaving San Diego unscathed...

BTW, the next time threads are posted about folks in MN dealing with blizzards, freezing ice on power lines-no power, marauding Somalis killing people, etc, please be sure that you share such sentiments on those threads as well...NOT

***BTW, with the exception of Florida (small increase over Cali),CALIFORNIA POSTED MORE POPULAR VOTES FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP THAN ANY OTHER STATE. So stop with the California deserves to get burned nonsense!!! Sheesh!

Amen brother. Only by the grace of God go I. Jesus said that the rain falls on the just and unjust. The same works for fire. I live high up in the mountains in California and dodged a fire back in September and had to evacuate. Thank God nothing happened to my house. Yes I am a conservative but if my liberal neighbor needed help, I wouldn’t hesitate to lend a hand.

winds should pick up again as the sun goes down and really ramp up tonight and its the morning

4 major fires burning

unconfirmed reports Thomas fire now 83,000 acres..and has burned all the way to the coast

with 55-85 MPH wind gusts in the mountains including further south in the San Diego mts....in other sorts all over

more resources pouring in but just too much ground to cover

I’m really concerned about Northern Ventura county including Ojai area..an arm of the Thomas fire is east of them and will be pushed west when the wind picks up

With all due respect, what did they do to deserve the fire in 1894?

Are you saying that since they had a big fire in 1894, that covers all their evil ways going forward to now?

As I stated, MN voted for Obama, Hillary, has 2 democrat senators, a democrat governors and probably voted sanctuary cities/counties, etc...so are they due for more troubles?

Again, highly inappropriate place to be positing this type of comment. This is a breaking news thread meant to help people keep up with fires threatening their loved ones.

100’s and 100’s of homes lost

more fires breaking out


Read your post on another thread...Hundred’s of homes lost...In Midwest, we are not getting as much coverage of this as out there.

This is so sad—as I stated during the Sonoma fires, I cannot imagine the fear going through people’s hearts and minds seeing uncontrolled flames approaching.

I am following as I have friends and family out there.

Keeping all in my thoughts and prayers!

Causes?

I'm a SoCal native. I've witnessed spontaneous combustion ocurring before my eyes, during times like this.

In the presser just announced that all Valley schools are closed for tomorrow and Friday due to air quality issues. Good move. The real problem is tonight when very high winds are expected.

These are the #wildfires currently active (according to Google) in #California. The gray circles mean the fire is contained. Note "containment" means there is a control line around the fire which is reasonably expected to stop its spread. It does not equal "controlled" or "out." pic.twitter.com/KVxbgzWTp8— Whit Honea (@whithonea) December 6, 2017

they are with holding the cause of these fires because they are all intentionally set fires by domestic and foreign terrorists. They cant use the lightening lie because there is none. We have a right to know all detaild about the starting of these fires!!
