San Diego Up In Smoke


#1

This is getting ridiculous. There's like 9 fires going, some fire official said structure fires could burn down to the coast if they don't get a handle on it. This is crazier than the cedar fire 4 years ago.


#2

yeah, this shit is pretty crazy. the fires are about 10 miles from the house. i run a courier company, all the road closures are making my life hell right now.


#3

Shit, I live in San Luis Obispo and we're even smoked out. Crazy shit.


#4

Oh shit. I was there in PB for the fires 4 years ago. When I walked out side my truck was covered in ashes and the sun was blotted out. I though a nuke went off. I've helped build a lot of houses around there after the fires. Hopefully the damage is minimal and no one else gets killed.

The Otay fire was started by 2 teenage boys. I don't even have the words to say how disgusted I am with that.

Ash is falling in my front lawn.

This is worse than the Cedar fires. Then the winds only lasted 18-hours, they say these winds will last 3-days.

Terrible.


#6

Just wanted to be the first non-California post in the thread...my condolences to you all.


#7

I grew up in California and moved out for many many reasons; brush fires being low on the list.

But I can't feel sorry for the residents (unless they're injured). It's a shitty state.


#8

speaking for myself as a native, I hope you choke on your opinion and your really cavalier sense of timing. Was it more important to share your caustic comment than to have a modicum of decency for those of us that do like it here and choose to live here?

This state is my home.

you're a shitty person


#9

you should of been a blowjob


#10

I can't believe its worse than the cedar fires. 250000 residences evacuated and the fire departments can't seem to get it under control.

Oh and record heat tomorrow.

I heard a quote today that this fire makes the Cedar Fire look like a camp fire. Latest report is the Witch Creek Fire is now 36 miles long and 18 miles wide. Unbelievable.

Hope everyone's safe!

I love how a couple of well-timed sentences are enough to get all you ladies' panties in a bunch.

I apologize, I'll try to force a tear of sympathy if that's what you expect the rest of the nation to do, as if we had no higher priorities.


#15

Oh get off your attitude.

No one here asked to be your PRIORITY.

In the same vein, no one asked you to dump trash on a state and county that is on fire with 300,000 people without a home.

But your priority was to get on this thread and post an insult. You have a fucked sense of priority.

save your tears, they'd be as worthless as your opinion


#16

so far the LA area hasn't been too badly affected. Although to the north Malibu is having some problems. I think Pepperdine may have damaged, but I'm not sure.


#17

Get off my attitude, Miss Hypocricy? Who threw the first stone?

You're right, though. It's a god-awful shame that so many people are without a home, I hope the best for all of them, truly. I never said I rocked my jollies from their suffering, merely that the state of California as a whole, quite honestly, I hate.

You, on the other hand, in your skewed sense of heroism and self-righteousness, should have been one among the numbers to lose their home. Since obviously instead of contributing any humanitarian time have felt a greater desire to sit there on your chair and menstruate all over your quasi-benevolant bullshit statements.

On a side note, that's a gorgeous black lab you have.


#18

yah, your post sure proved that I am the one that is skewed.

wishing someone loses their home.

your parents must be so proud.

done sharing your hate?


#19

Sure, but if you tell me you honestly think Dianne Feinstein deserves to keep her job, then no.


#20

and another thing, I can't leave right now, I may be evacuated. I have that gorgeous black lab that I have to be ready to leave with.

We have been told not to use the roads if possible.

And where I work, we have a fire department. I've spent the whole day coordinating supplies for our department. Making arrangements for their families. And I donated money. I didn't do all that hoping YOU would think I was worthy. I did that because there is a tragedy happening right now to people I know, in my neighborhood, in my town.

So yah, I am sitting here waiting to see if my home will burn.
