Thread Name: BS: San Diego/California Wildfires Again
Subject: RE: BS: San Diegos Wildfires Again
I sent a long post which hit a down-spot and failed. Basically the county is in pretty dire straits. So far they are not impinging on our region and the winds around here are running NW, away from us.

We are ready to pull out if the occasion is forced n us.

Scripps/Poway area is under evacuation. South of State 78 is still clear. We're well south of there.

Qualcomm Stadium has been pressed into service as a evac center; Del Mar Fairgrounds is already full, including all their stables, filled with evacuated horses.

250,000 residents around the county are evacuating or already evacuated.

Hundreds of homes have gone up in flames in the path of the major fires.

So far, so good. We all have our fingers crossed.
