Wow, Gina - glad your place was spared and you were able to return; sorry about your breathing challenges tho'.

Carole & Jim - so glad the fire(s) in your area were diverted/contained before threatening you guys.

Bob - we admire your stand against the fires; seeing a wind-driven firestorm anywhere nearby would have dissolved my determination, and I'd be on the run! Hope things continue to work in your favor.

Dave & I are staggered by the damage inflicted on regions we lived in & loved for years. Our hearts go out to all who lost their homes/businesses and all are in our prayers. L 'n D

The smoke has cleared here (DON'T excuse the pun.. it isn't a pun, there is nothing funny about it) and by the end of the week, all will be let back home.

Today and tomorrow are tours of the devastated areas for residents in those areas only. They will be allowed to collect what they can from the destruction before the masses are let back up.

300+ homes lost here and rising as officials can get into previously unsafe areas and do the body count.

The good news is. NO ONE DIED up here. Last time, I think we lost 3. (Have to double check the #S, but that # sticks in my mind)

Glad you are ok and did not lose your house, sure sounds like it is not over down there yet but hopefully they will soon get the rest of the fires out.

That sure seems like a lot of homes to be lost in that area but glad there were no deaths.

Take care of yourselves everyone in the devastated areas down there.

It's good to hear that everyone from this forum, at least, is safe. I spent much of my youth in Southern California; my family has gradually drifted north with the exception of my daughters who live in the Riverside area and my late brother's widow and family, who lives just blocks from the junior high school I used to attend. Many of my other friends still live in and around San Diego. It hurts to know that you and they have all had a hard time, makes me want to reach out to all of you. Frustrating, too: I was asked to do disaster response for the Red Cross, and would have been a good choice because I know the area well, but had to turn them down because of my school commitments.

My best wishes to all of you for clear skies, high spirits, and a nice, light rain.

Peter, since you know the area...the Red Cross center for the San Bernardino fires is at the National Orange Show and it is still open. Kind of a small place to put all those folks in. (And Starbucks did not set up stands for us low life, unlike what they did in San Diego...) The insurance companies have moved out and are set up around here now, in the park and grocery store parking lots (Not bad views for the ones at Lake Gregory park)

Normally, they use Norton AFB, but it was so active with firefighting planes that it would have been too dangerous to have masses there. Usually those runways only see tumbleweeds taxiing...

Thank you for your servcie with the Red Cross. They have been, and continue to be, a tremendous help for everyone needing it.
