    Saw on CNN that La Canada is burning...isn't this close to 5150? I know VH played lots of gigs in that area in their younger days. I wonder how close 5150 is to these wildfires?

    Geez, i sure hope that 10 albums worth of material is in a fireproof vault.

    There are wildfires everywhere in the western US. It's amazing to see the destruction these things cause. My wife works for a catering company that contracts to feed the firemen that work these types of fires. She's on her third fire this season, currently she's in southwest Utah.

    She tells me these guys are full of soot and ash when they come to get food. Normally her company will be sent out where there's 500 or more firefighters working on a fire. I expected her to have to go to this fire, but they sent her to Utah instead.

    La Canada is nowhere near 5150. That's not to say such a fire couldn't happen in the Hollywood Hills. It could. SoCal has been overbuilt for decades, tons of houses are built in very very dry areas in places where there should be nothing. I could see the fire burning around the 2 freeway on my way back from work today. Very scary sight, especially at night. The cars on the freeway immediately went from 80 to 50 mph, freaked out by the red sky by the mountain. Air quality is terrible right now. We can't wait for cooler weather, supposedly by the end of the week.

    Red moon in Denver tonight courtesy of the California wildfires.

    The smoke over Colorado — which has made the mountains west of Denver invisible from downtown Denver — has come directly from the massive 85,000-acre wildfire in Southern California, according to the National Weather Service.

    Although Denverites could barely see the gray outlines of the foothills immediately west of Golden and Lakewood this afternoon, the higher mountains had disappeared in a dirty white haze.

    I am so sick of the smoke and my burning, red eyes.

    Santa Cruz the last few weeks, now Southern Monterey County this week.

    Looks terrible there.

    It stinks all the way out here in Denver. Here's a late afternoon shot just west of Denver today.



    Been very dry here in recent weeks. I'm afraid those hills in that pic there are probably next to go up in flames.

    Hope everyone stays safe in So Cal.
    I heard a couple of firefighters died there last night when their vehicle went off the road in all that smoke and rolled down a hill.

    Being a firefighter myself, I wouldn't want the job these forestry firefighters have. These men and women have it bad. What I do and what they do are two different beast altogether.

    Keep them in your thoughts folks. They always have and are doing what they can to beat this. Very brave men and women out there.

    But, I will say this, if I had to do this job, this would be right up my ally. Fire Tanker Pilot!!

    Enjoy the video from the firefight in La Canada Station Fire.

    I'm so tired of having to go through this every 2 years!

    I wake up, see ashes on my truck and driveway...

    Look into the sky and see that orangy-dinge everywhere...

    Ugh!

    Found this pic. Think it pretty much sums up the conditions out there that some of you are having to deal with. This is somewhere on the, "Station" fire.

    Wish I could give some credit to the pic taker, but I'm not sure who it is.
