I cannot take this, I really cannot, they just turned my power back on late last night and now it's going dark again today and these unnatural fierce winds are going to be at their worst where I am on a mountain top.

PG&E has not turned off the high voltage wires the really big ones which have been the culprits in all these fires primarily and I live near one to close for comfort. If it is them intentionally letting this happen, and hiring the random arsonists to stoke them like the dozen or so scattered odd fires in my area in the past 24 hours as some have suggested, I don't hold much hope.

I am traumatized, my neighbors and business owners and beyond for miles and miles and miles. We here in California are being screwed with, feels like war against the people.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76130010


how are the businesses handing a the losses from throwing food away? hw many are oooking to get out of business completely when this is over? what is the word from the local govern's due to the lost tax revenues?

it is quite alarming that 1 business,PG&E, can control and bankrupt so many areas.goes to show how much corporations can dictate this country. imagine if trucking company or shipping did this?
 Quoting: JAZZz50


These issues are really serious, especially for so many small businesses that are hanging from a thread week to week. I have lost two refrigerators full of at least hundreds of dollars of food and condiments, in spite of big ice chests and certain generated back up.

There is no ice to be had anywhere so most folks are left with no way to save. This is very hard on the elderly and poor families who live day to day in spite of the Bay area having wealth, there are million of those who struggle for food security.

For some restaurants in the few areas with power it has increased business, but for most it has created a standstill in retail, among others, and this will have a devastating trickle down result.

I imagine hundreds if not more will shut after all is said in done in the coming month. That and the mass exodus out of the state, like myself, and a glut of un sellable almost worthless real estate is about to hit the market with few buyers to be had.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76130010


Rest assured: There WILL be buyers. Buying up the "worthless" land for pennies on the dollar.

This isn't just some power outage from a storm, we weather that all over the world all the time, this is different, contrived and directed and broad reaching perpetual devastation towards the populace by our elected officials, on behalf of the Corporation. Treasons shit they will never be held accountable for.

o one could fathom what they were doing to poor Venezuela, well they are doing it here, and worse, starting fires everywhere, the world is being manipulated by a chosen few into it's death throes, and California is the first State in this country to be sacrificed, get ready, I doubt it stops here...

I've never seen this language used before either.
@NWSLosAngeles: is this the first issuance of an "Extreme Red Flag Warning?" This sounds similar to the upgraded "Emergency" version of Tornado and Flash Flood Warnings by @NWS during particularly dangerous events.


@bhensonweather
An "extreme red flag" warning--first time I've seen this--is out for LA/Ventura mountains from late Tues through Thurs. Winds could gust to 80 mph, and relative humidities could drop to 1-2%, even though temps won't be very warm. A frightening scenario.

Thank you to both of you for being compassionate, and anyone else on this thread who may have send well wishes, it felt good to read, but I feel guilty complaining at all when so many all over the planet are experiencing volumes worse, even in my near vicinity.

I am tired, I have already once lost all to fire, my dream home and everything in it, it is a never ending wound which revisits frequently in this state and others. I left southern California after the loss, went to Colorado, and the fires there were pretty ominous as well, so I went to Canada, and the fires were terrible, so I came back to Cali and low and behold.

Right now I am on my mountain top in Santa Cruz, in my redwood house waiting for the firepocolypse to visit my neighborhood, seems inevitable. I can hope , but all my new and valuable possessions accumulated after the last fire, over several years are sitting in storage units in Healdsburg, a mile from the fire there which threatens to take out the town.

It's not pretty, but I am alive and this is what counts, and the stuff, screw it, I can get more, teaches you what you really don't need and can do without. But they are doing this and it feels like an assault.

There it is...the decades old argument....funny though, your own Forest Service says it is the overgrown and dead brush that provides the number #1 fuel that causes the spread of these fires...how bout that.

[link to www.americanthinker.com (secure)]



According to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), shrubs and live and dead vegetation are the most important factor in forest fires, being an easily ignitable fuel source that helps spread the flames quickly over vast distances. For a dry and warm state prone to fires, regular clearing measures removing this vegetation should be common sense. However, California has enacted several laws that heavily restrict such vital fire-preventing measures as logging, removal of dead trees, and clearing of dry underbrush.

 Quoting: An Average American Patriot


Old dry brush is what needs removing and cleared totally away from housing. It would not need to be except or those winds you have. I have noticed most fires start down and run up the hill, that maybe the place to clear the most, then fire breaks in the mountains in places to keep the fire better to control. This works, we had similar problems when I was you, fire never help and landslides sure do happen after fires. The only plant we used to stop landslides was Kutzu and you have to control it. Mostly it to bring in people to study the fire patterns and that would be going back to as many fires as possible, where they start and most are set by accidents and sometime deliberate, other things that could start them should be studied. One thing for sure, where they start is the focal point, if most start down and work up, that where you put most of the start of work to fix it.

The breaks keep home from burning most of the time, no grass can burn if it not there to burn. Winds pick of sparks and carry them a long way sometimes, most of the time it just not far and if the first is easier to put out, there won't be more, fire in wind is carried from fire to fire. I been watch how these seem to spread, running the ground first.

I cannot take this, I really cannot, they just turned my power back on late last night and now it's going dark again today and these unnatural fierce winds are going to be at their worst where I am on a mountain top.

PG&E has not turned off the high voltage wires the really big ones which have been the culprits in all these fires primarily and I live near one to close for comfort. If it is them intentionally letting this happen, and hiring the random arsonists to stoke them like the dozen or so scattered odd fires in my area in the past 24 hours as some have suggested, I don't hold much hope.

I am traumatized, my neighbors and business owners and beyond for miles and miles and miles. We here in California are being screwed with, feels like war against the people.

 Quoting: FeedYourHead


I'm a California native. Born and raised. Staunch Constitutionalist. Conservative.

Santa Ana winds are a well known, well documented event in California.

They're as normal as earthquakes.

Fire season is normal in California.

Dry weather is normal in California.

We've pumped water in from the Colorado for as long as I've been alive.

Ever hear of the California aquaduct?

What is different now is there are TOO MANY PEOPLE in California and homes have been built in rural areas that used to be forests, natural enclaves etc.

People love those views but are surprised when fire races up the hills like burning tornados.

My prayers to anyone affected, but "clearing brush" on a hill will only bring you landslides when it does rain.

And nothing is going to stop the dry Santa Anas from blowing in from the desert.

Pack up and be ready to evacuate quickly.

Nothing can save your home if the fire rips through the area but you can sure save your own life.

Feels almost like shooting popcorn at a tank. Look at how small that aircraft doing water drops over Kincade fire looks compared to the smoke. the fire has now spread into lake county. Many aircraft are doing the drops. ⁦@kron4news
