Just looked at some of it. I’d probably move to a different state but I’m more mobile than others. Stay safe everyone. Has this been an above average year or is this the norm?

The last wildfire a few months ago was so deadly.
I could smell it from where I'm at.

Sunny and clear in North Hollywood, thank God. The other side of town is a disaster. My cousin up in the Carpenteria was evacuated. Scary stuff.

This video is nuts. Really does look like something from an end of the world type movie. Stay safe out there.

I evacuated during the Carlsbad fire 4 years ago. It was NO JOKE.

We've been under advisory for the last few days but I think we are relatively clear and safe for the time being. It's a pain to have to pack all your stuff up and be ready to leave at any moment but such is life now here in Socal where there isn't enough consistent rain, the weather is so arid and then the Santa Ana winds blowing.

Thomas Fire - I'm in Ojai, fire basically surrounded the city and then went around instead of all the way in, so fire image maps show this like giant crab shaped thing of fire with a small slice of not burnt area near its head and right claw, and that small slice is Ojai! so far...fire could always come back. The air here is toxic though *cough *cough

We are supposed to go to Disneyland on the 16th. Just a wait and see right now. Thoughts and prayers are with those families and Firefighters.

I moved from Carlsbad to Morro Bay 2 years ago so I don’t have the worry this time. However, I fear for MANY of my friends and neighbors from the past. Terrible situation. Seriously......

The air quality in Anaheim is significantly better now. You should be fine by the 16th. A couple good samaritans caught an arsonist setting a fire yesterday, so that hopefully puts an end to new fires.

I'd suggest you arrive early to Disneyland, the 16th is a Friday and will be packed. I'm a annual pass holder there, if you have any questions about Disneyland/California Adventure/or the area, PM me
