    Re: Another Fire Today East of Disneyland

    I took some pics of the smoke around my house.

    As a California residant all of my life, I am quite used to fires and earthquakes. But never so near my house. Usually the fires are miles away. I can barely see the smoke.

    Sometime last night, however, 2 fires have started, onkly fueled by dry bush from our drought and Santa Anna winds. Just east of where I live. I took pictures, moments ago, of what the sky looks like around my home.







    Luckily, for me, the winds aren't blowing in my direction. I'm hoping and prying that the winds won't change direction. We had a fire nearly get our cabin last year. It just passed right over ours and onto the next. I feel like how I felt then: Totally freaked out.

    The parents left for the night up to the cabin, just in case fires start up there again. That way this time they'll have time to gather up all of our grandmothers paintings and other priceless things.

    I'm trying to think of other things, but it's hard when the smoke has blocked outt he sun and it's so hot that I can barely breath. The nose bleeds don't help either. I've already had two so far. Yes, the air id THAT dry and hot here. I'm by the beach, so you'd think the air would be less drier than other places right now. Stupid winds.

    Re: Another Fire Today East of Disneyland

    You are right, they are two separate fires. Apparently it has jumped the 91 and into Anaheim Hills. An apartment building has been destroyed as I am typing this right now.

    For those of you who do not live in the local area -- Anaheim Hills is in the eastern portion of Anaheim. Anaheim is the largest city in Orange County in area and it is too far from Disneyland to burn anything there. For sure, the smoke is atrocious, but for the flames to reach Disneyland from where it is burning you would be looking at a disaster of epic proportions and this will not happen.

    All these structural damages with all of these fires -- it is truly depressing. I feel for all those who have lost homes...

    Stay safe everyone. While I can see a lot of smoke but the wind is blowing the ashes toward the OC area. Might be a good day to stay inside for all close to the fires.

    What they really needed on thurday was a fire drill.

    But as has been stated, many more houses, acres, and more lives will have t be lost for the fire to reach disneyland, as it is right in the middle of the city. Most likely if it even got near there it would get contained. There is no brush close enough to Disneyland for it to catch fire. Walt made a good judgement on where to put his park.

    I noticed that TSMM and CS were both shut down simultaneously around 11 AM. I had a feeling power was out.

    Re: Another Fire Today East of Disneyland

    I live in Fullerton, 5 miles up Harbor from DL and its pretty nasty out. I have a Fantasmic shift for tonight and I called to see if we're still having it and they said yes so far. So we'll see if I get a call otherwise later. There's lots of ash in the air here and its kinda creepy and orange out. I took these pics right before 2pm


    Is this haunted signature
    actually
    stretching?


    Or is it your imagination, hmm?

    Indeed. My heart, and best wishes and prayers, go out to all those displaced by these horrendous fires, from Santa Barbara to San Diego.

    Missing a few hours of theme park fun seems like a very small price to pay, in comparison.

    If the winds we currently have, sustained at about 30 mph, and gusts up to 70 there is no way any pyro is going to happen tonight... But its to early to tell if the winds will be sustained, weather reports say it should pull back a little.
