Re: [californiadisasters] Photos of 'horrific firestorm' raging through fores...

Good link.   I've been watching this fire since it first broke out and it's proven to be extremely erratic.   It's grown and moved in all directions, burned itself out in spots, only to re-ignite at those same spots again.  The wind has shifted what seems like a hundred times.   We've felt like we've dodged a bullet one hour, only to be looking at the same area blowing up again.   My boss had his car packed as a pre-caution, but thankfully the fire is staying out of the San Fernando Valley.   Last night traffic on the 5 and the 14 was a parking lot, with people driving in the wrong direction to get off.   Today, I am looking out my window and the smoke plume is going higher up... meaning the winds aren't as strong this afternoon.  But we thought the same thing yesterday and then it blew up again.    Rail traffic is also haulted.
