Default The San Diego Fires

I woke this morning to notice that the sky was not the blue sky that I am familiar with in San Diego, but a grayish mass. I was actually surprised to see no thread on this considering the masses of 2+2ers living in SD. Living in Poway I don't think I am at any risk atm, but they say if the winds turn I would have to be evacuated. So far all the universities are closed, And I-15 and I-8 is closed, so I'm left with not much choice to evacuate. I'll be heading up the coast I guess. If you live in the north eastern section of the city, I'd probably pay attention to the news.

I found this google map that shows the fires link

campus is closed here at UCSD. We're pretty much trapped in our rooms, the air quality is god-awful. You can see the ash. Nowhere to really go. Now regretting that I didn't make my grocery run yesterday, like planned.

Most of the north and east sides of the city have been evacuated and the traffic is absolutely a mess. Lots of the exits on the 15 are closed and apparently its just bumper to bumper trying to get south.

This is pretty crazy to me. Everyone warned of earthquakes when I moved out here, but it looks like these wildfires are the thing to be worried about. I live pretty close to the coast so I'll be fine but quite sad to see areas I know on TV burning.

I also know there's at least 1 2p2er that lives in Ramona as he has it in his location.

Horray for no school. You guys think it'll be canceled again tomorrow?

I'd keep a careful eye out as Poway is pretty vulnerable considering where some of the fires are. Here in Encinitas things seem find on the coast but from the ridge you can see at least two fires in the distance to the East/NE. Good luck and keep safe.

Keep safe everyone in the LA/SD area. Looks like fires are everywhere. Hopefully the winds will cooperate.

And sadly, it's not looking good for that. From reports that I hear, they at least got some air relief up and going.

alot of it is now grounded. They want to get military copters in the air but can't. Also NorCal is sending trucks down.

I have 2 choices if to evacuate. I can stay with another grad student in Vista and the 5 looks jammed. Or I can go to a 2+2ers house in Alpine. The trick will be getting there.

Here is a map of some of the evacuation area. As you can see its fairly large, and I have family just north of the 56. and I am just south of it
