    Default California Firestorm 2k14

    It's that time of year again.
    Thousands of homes have been ordered to evacuate, and many campuses have been shut down.
    Hell, they even had to close Legoland*, jesus FUCK.

    Thoughts? Opinions? Will this trump the Cedar Fire, AKA the "Fire Surge of 2003?"

    today sucked. I had to drive passed 4 of those fires to get home today. the Carlsbad fire burned really close to where I used to work and the Bernardo fire is close to where I work now. San Marcos looked really bad when I drove passed it, but the highway fire looked like it was out.

    It pleases me that we have a California Earthquake thread, a California Rain thread, and now a California fire thread.

    These fires? No, not even close. The Cedar Fire is the largest recorded fire in CA - it started in a very remote backcountry area the evening before and had already burned all the way into the city of San Diego proper by noon the next day. I'm still amazed (and relieved) to this day that it didn't burn all the way to the sea. The crazy statistic is that it burned like 5000 acres an hour.

    But with this drought and heat, it is going to be a very long and very scary fire season, especially if there's some nut case out there who's having fun setting fires. (Nine separate fires in one day is kinda odd.)

    What all this tells me is that we need to develop the rest of the land.

    I think he makes a good point. Developed the land, put up a few parking lots...boom! No wild fires. When was the last outbreak of parking lot fires you heard about?

    Yeah, it was intense. I was only in middle school at the time, and we were closed for like two weeks. There was a period of time where the skyline was orange and there was ash raining from the sky. I was in Chula Vista at the time (south of San Diego proper) so we didn't have to worry about our houses burning or anything fortunitely.

    As I type this, I'm in the second floor of the building where I work, and the Scripps Ranch fire is clearly visible. I guess it could be the Bernardo fire too, not completely sure.

    We've had record-breaking heat all week (second time in as many weeks), in May, a month that is usually cool and overcast. Fire season is all year-round now. Any time of year we have red flag warnings (high heat, high winds, low humidity) everyone braces for the worst and hopes no one - deliberately or accidentally - does anything stupid and sets the whole county on fire. CalFire was at full staffing in April, two months in advance.

    We were evacuated around 4pm today. Hopefully it was just precautionary.
