Ay great talkin to you too Craig!smileys with beer

Well.... the fire was out around here but for way over on the other side of the mountain North of us. However I woke up to this today. This are had been knocked out Friday for the most part. Hardly wisp of smoke all weekend. But last night it flared up again. Huge fire line from the Hwy 126 to the mountain.
So I pondered packing up valuables because if the avocado orchards went up my neighborhood would be next in line.
Luckily by 10:00 this morning the winds came up blowing the fire back against it's self and water drops also knocked it down.

So here we go again. I hope they catch the Bass Poop who lit this one off!

Well... we are hoping it is about done here on the East end of this Thomas fire. They need to concentrate manpower on the West end of the fire that's approaching Santa Barbara. Up there it is in heavy brush, deep in the remote hills.
Quite an adventure when those damn arsonists go on a rampage this time of year!

All of the So. Calif fires started on or near roads or highways. There have been no official reports on how these started as of yet. Still investigating. However, if its wind and power lines or lightening... we get those reports right away.

Some locals did tackle one arsonist South of here last weekend, right after he started a fire on a hill side.

Yep. I'm right there on the West side of Fillmore. Quite a view and about as close to the hot smiley as I want to be! Others to the West lost everything. Vary vary tragic.

One of my fellow employees at So Cal Gas Co lost everything due to the Thomas Fire.

She was woken up by her smoke alarms in the middle of the night to find her house on fire.

There were no fire department personel on site...that is how fast this fire has moved.

She escaped on foot as her car was on fire with only her pajamas and one of her two cats.

The most important fact of all is her smoke alarms woke her up and saved her life.

For your families safety test your smoke alarms twice a year at the seasonal time change.
