I hope that I can make it to work, I work in Ontario and live in San Berdo. Wind is starting to pick up again. I might have to get my kids and get outta town. My wifes uncles live in Santa Clarita, we talked to them last night and they were fine, we have not talked to them today.

Jeremy, don't wait too long to evacuate. These fires are
just exploding with the wind! Keep my babies safe!!
Jeremy, call the uncles and see if it's safe. Fire there too!

My niece is a nurse at one of the hospitals, can't leave until
they get the evacuees in from another hospital. Her 2 children
and husband are being evacuated for the 2nd time, my other
niece is with them. Having a
hard time getting out with all the fires surrounding them and
roads closed.

My sister can't go home, getting ready to evacuate her from
work.

This is just insane!!!! I hope all your family is doing good and are safe. San Diego is very very bad!!!! They are just letting everything burn! they dont have enough fire fighters out there. Most of San Diego is going to be flat before they get any help.

I'll happily blow some of the clouds and rain from the NW down south toward you all. Its been pretty wet and the snow level is around 3500 ft.

I've been thinking about my fellow racers in So. Cal. I am wishing you all the best.

Voluntary evacuations now in Chula Vista, where my other
sister and niece is.

It's already a mess in SanDiego. Got to get my family here.
They are on the 78, and I think it's surrounded by fire, and
roads are closed the other way out.

Fire in Fallbrook has jumped the freeway and side road.

ANOTHER fire in Valencia!

Hopefully everyone heeds the warnings and evacuates. We had fires like that here a few years ago in oklahoma. Sometimes the conditions are just right.

Most are trying to evacuate, problem in San Diego is
the roads are closed, fires are just surrounding entire
areas. I don't know how the 258,000 people already
evacuated have done it.

Less than 10% humidity, temps 85-90 degs. and wind
gusts anywhere from 50 to 100 MPH, and drought conditions.
As they have said, "perfect storm" conditions!

DOWNTOWN: Are you ok????

They are doing '"reverse" 911 calls to residents, didn't know
they could do that!

Mom, I heard on the news the fire is close to where Barona is. I hope the everyone is ok and nobody has been hurt. They brought people down from Ramona to my High school in Santee, and many other schools, so I dont have school for a week or more.
