Yes, I know that "fire season" is a thing out in SoCal, having lived there and been through several evacuations and near misses. My old neighborhood was entirely burnt to the ground a few years after we left. But this year the fires seem particularly bad and early, and I know at least one ChitChatter who had to evacuate. I hope everyone affected is doing better? Please check in on this thread to let everyone know you're safe and how you're doing, plus receive some virtual hugs.

Puerto Rico needs one of these threads too, but even more they need cash and infrastructure fixes, but that's a thread for RSP!

posting in the women and gaming forum's secret santa thread that she had been evacuated. She was one of the prize winners of this year's Taco eating challenge.

Margaret's my roommate, and yes, we've moved back into our house and there's been no property damage for us. We're still dealing with all the smoke and ash here in Ventura, but there's no current danger. Other cities and outlying areas are under increased threat the last couple of days. Most of what has burned is the hills and foothills behind the city, though on that first night, the fires did tear through many of the houses up on the hillsides.

If anyone wants more details, feel free to ask, and I'll respond as I get the chance.

I’m in the SGV, so I’m fine. We could see huge plumes of smoke when I drop my wife off at work in Hollywood.

I have to drive through Santa Clarita en route to a Spartan Race today. That could be interesting.

“Hills” is the key here. Every time there’s a fire, my parents (in NC) freak out. No amount of explaining to them that we live on flat land a few miles from hills or mountains quell their fears.
