map of fires in our area
http://www.redding.com/photos/2008/jun/23/19491/

the fires are still pretty bad here

air quality yesterday was 4 pts away from very unhealthy

the road we traveled yesterday thru the mountains to take kids to my ex is now closed and the fire threatens to jump the highway

jeff has gone to the sand dunes on the oregon coast to ride the quad with his buddies

i was too tired to pack up and head out yet again and then turn around and pack to go back to the lake in the mountains (assuming pg&e resumes operations)

so here we sit inside :-)

I've been following the news about the Ca fires, it is bad:(
Is it very close to you?
I had to deal with a fire yesterday, my neighbour's house went up in flames.
Luckily enough the wind blew the fire and sparks away from my place. Scary stuff.

oh man that sux!

it's all around us John

I'm on the shasta/tehema county line
ManiacMom is up in redding

it's bad

the sun can manage only a reddish haze glow on the carpet at my feet right now

my house is situated in such a way that I think we are pretty darn safe if that stuff heads our way.... the closest one to me is west near Platina and Igo
they got evacuated this morning :(

I hope they put the fires out soon Lisa, I know how bad it can be as I've been here in the fires more than once.
Just hope they remind the tourists this year how dry it all is after four years of drought here.

Stay safe !
