    Almost all Bay Area Schools (SF/Oak) are closed due to smoke in the air. In Sacramento and the surrounding areas all kids were kept indoors for lunch and PE.

    Santa Rosa is indeed a mess. I work there. Napa county (specifically Calistoga) is also getting hit hard.

    They are now talking about possibly moving the Raiders/Cahrgers game in Oakland to Levis Stadium in Santa Clara due to smoke.

    That's California. It's so densely populated with houses right up on brush hillsides that all it takes is a spark and the strong winds and whole neighborhoods go up in flames.

    We had a similar situation here a few years ago down in the Colorado Springs area. A fire started up in the mountains, but strong winds from the west brought it down into a neighborhood in the western part of the city. Even the US Air Force Academy was threatened but they were able to get it contained and keep it from burning that down.

    Here's an interesting time lapse of that fire:



    If you don't want to watch the whole thing, fast forward to 6:30 in the video. That's Tuesday when high winds caused it to spill over into the western part of the city.

    This is what's happening in California right now. Incredible footage from the Colordao Springs fire from firefighters on the scene trying to limit the damage.
