Yeah, but it seems like we've gotten a long way ..away from what it means to effect 'immediate action'.

Very strong e-mail. It made me pause for a minute and think about this whole situation.

Reason 247 and 62 are getting jammed up is that they were expecting 30,000 to evacuate via those routes. It's bad enough when 1-3000 commute that route at 'rush hour', but traffic flows fine.

KNBC's Paul Moyer:

Funny that his is the first name I should see when I plugged back into this thread.....he's without doubt the most boneheaded (flat out dolt) "anchor" in L.A. television.

He just finished axing an on-ground reporter if the helicopters that could be heard were still dropping water; the reporter gently told him that "no...they're our TV choppers"

This isn't quite as good as the way this idiot handled himself during the OJ White Bronco chase, but it puts him back in the neighborhood.

Julian and Alpine are nice places, on my frequent drives to SD from PHX, I drive through those mountains at about 4000 ft. I prefer taking the prop plane flight into Carlsbad though, its a beautiful ride over (just over!) Palomar and the canyons leading into that tiny airport.

I think part of the confusion may be that Big Bear Lake and Big Bear City are not the same town (but adjacent). I noticed this when I stayed there on layover from hiking.

Yeah, they are still on strike, but I think people aren't paying attention right now.

The grocery companies are getting desperate I think actually though.

Got a coupon in the mail from Ralphs today. $10 off any order of $50, free eggs with $10 purchase. Albertsons is offering $10 off prescriptions.

Other than that, there has not been one bit I know about the strike, other than seeing the strikers on my way home.

Great! That's exactly what I hope will happen with my friends/family! That and the hope that they'll forward it to THEIR friends/family. If nothing else, I hope more and more people will be praying. The scope is really more than we can calculate at the moment.

Yeah - they're out picketing with masks on. Heck, there was one supermarket near the fire out here where there were two picketers yelling at people to go to Stater Brothers... when the people had been evacuated and were trying to get some water or food.

Yeah, KNBC reporter Chuck Henry was being stupid and not leaving when he should have, his van went toast, and a firefighter had to rescue him and his camera man without their news van.

Battalion Chief has asked to board a NightHawk helicopter to assess conditions for a possible assault from the air. KABC chopper says it's very difficult to manuver.......

I heard,...what happened to the reporter in Julian who wasn't responding to everybody's order to get out?


Last time I was in Julian, I approached from Borrego Springs and I was impressed by how difficult it was to get there and how many serpantine roads approached the town from the west,....I wouldn't want to wait to see flames before departing, might not make out of the serpentine roads for egress.

Yum!!!!

Forgot to tell the manager how much I appreciated his company feeding the fire fighters down south.

It just seemed like it was a poor time to bring that up thus the use of my word idiotic -- should have said poor timing! It just seem so bizarre to bring that up right now with all the devastation going on in SoCal!

Saw it first on the satellite photos, then a day later heard a comment on the news, then nothing. For that reason only, I doubt any Al Quada basis, but it would be reassuring to know exactly what the Chinese are doing in space right now,..especially considering the solar flare this morning,...seems like that would postpone any significant scientific venture for a time.

Chuck Henry might get banished to cover things out in the desert...where there's little danger of him getting his truck burned up.

Check the mountains as viewed from my back yard...not much to worry about in that regard.

things we would pay to see: burned out news van as monument at NBC studio in Burbank. With bronze placard to read: Don't let this be you!!! How not to report a dangerous fire condition.

KNBC's Ted Chen reported from near Julian about 10 minutes ago and said that at present, Julian is still intact.

However, it's anybody's guess how long that scenario holds.

Calling up another strike team to assist.
