Having a big fire out here at this time exasperated by high Santa Ana winds.

As the crow flies some of it is about half a mile from where I live.

So far the wind direction is keeping it away from out area, but very visible and smellable.

Nothing like having a water dropping DC-10 fly directly over your house at I estimate (and I have no concept of altitude) about 1 to 2 thousand feet then do a banking 90 degree turn into the smoke to make a drop you can see when standing in the street.

Local freeways are closed causing amazing gridlock and transportation havoc. Friend of ours who is in the movie/TV industry left work at 11:00pm last night at Universal Studios and got home at 6:00am this morning... about a 20 mile/ 20 minute drive on a normal evening.

Apparently 23,000 people have been evacuated so far as a precaution.

Winds scheduled to dissipate tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon), which should help.

Correction: It is now 100,000 evacuated.
