that low humidity and heat is a good recipe for the same ole same ole,  hate it for you guys,, looks like the wind is low for now, maybe, just maybe the winds will calm and give the fighters a chance to cut that one off.  Been keeping up with y'alls temps having Bret out that way, north but in the Mojave, all said brutally hot for you all.
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

I hope they can get a handle on that.  What's the weather forecast?  I suppose it's pretty much always hot and dry out there in the Inland Empire.  Hopefully the santa annas won't get to blowing.  I lived in Valencia and that sight looks mighty familiar.  Good luck.

The air tankers and a large number of ground engines responded and it looks like that fire will be controlled before sunset. Last week I topped off my fire tank (15000 gal) and for good reason . The mountains here have dry brush and the erratic winds keep everyone on edge !  Some past views.........Cheers  Rob

Those past views look even more like bombing and 'way too close for comfort.

Do those smoke clouds flatten out like that due to the jet stream passing over those mountains?

Are you downwind, relative to prevailing winds?

Winds are seasonal but on  a daily basis easterly in the morning and westerly in the afternoon. Fall and winter winds are STRONG north easterly with super low humidity sometimes blowing steady 30- 50 and gusting 60-80 knots for days. The jet stream has a great deal to with our winds and rainfall (lack of ). I am at about 4000 ft elevation listed as desert. All of the wood I cut is trucked in !  Rob

How's the fire, TulePeak?  Hopefully OUT or at least under control.

Here's a picture I took in 2004.  Fires and mudslides with a an occasional earthquake.  All part part of the Southern CA lifestyle.

Your pic makes me shudder ! The local fire is now contained , but not out yet.Some pics on FaceBook showed neighbors with burned backyards- but the homes were saved.As far as earthquakes we average 20-30 a month with only  2-3 being felt. I am right smack on top of an active fault and there is always a lot of noise and some  rockin and a rollin.The shop floor has huge cracks in it and ALL of my buildings are bolted up and down with steel straps. Cheers Rob

well doesn't that just add some excitement to the view, not that it needed it.  We just need to extend that straw from the colorado over to houston.  52" of rain would do some wonders for putting out fires.

Zero rain this summer and it has been 95-105 for weeks. Three fires going close by today and no power for 5 and one half hours.
