Dunno if this has made the national news yet or not, but I give you the Loma Prieta fire:

View from near my work earlier today:

Taken from the end of my driveway about 20 minutes ago, 13 second exposure:

    Tonite the smoke cloud is covering the entire area - but we can't smell it as yet, thank Goddess. Hope it stays that way...

    Oh distance? Roughly 20 miles.

    I can't see it getting to my area, but its been awhile since I could actually *see* a (major) fire from here.

    Does this mean you may be in Florida sooner than you thought? Stay safe.

    Nah. If you want the true Mordor experience, time your summer drive south on the 5 so that you get to the end of the San Joaquin Valley right around dusk. The smog cloud hanging over the mountain tops will convince you that you'll be able to see Barad Dur as soon as you top the pass.

    That first picture looks like several minutes after a nuclear explosion; mushroom cloud thingy. "In Modor where the shadows lie."

    Hope it doesn't come your way. Fires like that are bad stuff, and California sure seems to have lots of them!

    And when you move to FL you can trade those fires all the time for the occasional windstorm off the ocean. The big counterclockwise spinning ones that are more windy than a wound up politician at reelection time! :tooth:
