The fire is up to Highway 52 and Santo road. Santo road runs south 1 mile to Friars road. We live 2 blocks south of Friars. Shit is hitting the fan, and we're bracing to leave. We will be good, but it looks like my work may burn down. I haven't called in for the last 2 hours but I couldnt get an IT guy 2 hours ago, so I hope they have evacuated completely. Fucking A. How long is unemployment good for, anyway? You think I can call AFLAC right now and get covered? Promote this thread!

Y!: # 5 Posted on 26.10.03 1558.19 Reposted on: 26.10.10 1558.44 Yeah, it looks like some of my family might have to evac (a bit north of Guru, though) from the Simi Valley area. Fortunately, my mother seems to be unaffected as of yet. And those pictures? Downright scary; if this wasn't such a potentially dangerous situation, I'd say they were beautiful, though. Such a contrast.

Good luck. If you haven't bailed yet, you might want to go ahead & corner the cat, before he/she freaks. I trust you've got someplace to evacuate to. (If not, PM me & I'll make some calls.) Eeesh.

I have a few friends out near San Fran and they're preparing to pack up and get the fuck out of there in a moments notice too. Be careful...

My cousin is out there as well. He's near Ocean Beach, on Ashmun Drive, which is only a few miles from the fire. He said they were ready to run too. Good Luck Guru.

Y!: # 14 Posted on 26.10.03 1725.45 Reposted on: 26.10.10 1725.46 Guru: Hope everything ends up ok for you in there. It doesn't sound pretty. (admittedly a low priority thought for those close but) Has anything been said about the Monday Night Football game being affected by the fires? There isn't anything on nfl.com or chargers.com.

Ocean Beach is pretty far from the fire - your friend should be ok.

From the maps, it looks like the Cedar Fire is headed straight towards his area....hopefully not though. Again...good luck to all in CA.
