Have been in LA Region for past 8 days on biz...............I am leaving this morning ahead of schedule. Most of my business calls have been aborted due to fires every where here. Hotels are full of people escaping with dogs etc, roads closed, hotels full, and So Cal burns.
From the 8 th floor of my hotel here in Ontario you can see the glow of the fires in all directions. I'm out of here........................
I'm traveling this week in that area as well. It is bad. We also had people who couldn't make meeting due to closed roads. Schools have been cancelled in many places. The whole southern part of the state appears to be burning. On top of all of that, the wind is incredible. There had to be 70-80 mph gusts yesterday as we drove up highway 14 over the mountains. I'm in Palmdale and the wind blows constantly out here in the desert and everything is really dry.
Every where I have been is now on fire, Yesterday had 4 no shows for appointments. Dogs barked all night at this hotel. people in So Cal are weird anyway but this is off the charts. Was here in '93 during same thing, this is much worse.
Wind................drove up I-5 north yesterday. Trucks were lying on sides along Interstate.
