    I just found out that some friends of mine who live a few blocks down are evacuating due to a Fire thats in a nearby tourist town D: . This is not a "cool story bro" situation. I'll be packing my things (computer anyone?). (Where the fuck is this fire you ask, It's in california.)

    SHIT!!! the news just said it's moving rapidly, and could burn 2000 arcres by tonight. Also the fire is a second one started near our neighbors house. not the one I originally thought it was.




    EDIT: I'm going offline to pack and stuff right now.

    It's gotten alarmingly close. But the ranger station says we should be alright. So I won't disconnect the harddrive or anything yet.

    Better safe than sorry. Just get the right stuff together for a quick departure and read a book ;)

    You down by the major LA one or the Auburn one? Hopefully your stuff (ie, home) will be all right.

    Update

    No it's another one called the Yucaipa fire (find it on the internet somewhere.). Right now things are okay, The fire is going in the other direction causing some of the people on the otherside of the city to be evacuating. But nothing's happening here right now.

    Ah, you're on the other end of LA. I've been dealing with the smoke from the ones west of you for the past week, though fortunately I'm not in any danger of the fire itself. I know a number of people who have been uncomfortably close to having their homes burned. California brush fires suck.

    I'm not too sure if we're both talking about the same fire. But I heard the one I'm near is now 70 percent contained

    Fires where worse last year (in California that is). But I'm from the delta area, so we have plenty of water and nothing to burn :-/ We just get stuck with the smoke from the Sierras/Costal fires (siusun marsh fires last year where really, really bad).

    The fires out now I think, because the news stopped talking about it and I haven't heard any choppers go over our house.
