La Cañada Fire

I spent the first part of the day chasing the smoke from the La Cañada fire that broke out yesterday. I got as close as I could without trespassing or being burned alive and the photos I have are pretty amazing. I don’t have much to say on the subject, so I am just going to post the pictures I took:

Here’s the smoke from my apartment’s parking lot

When I pulled out of my driveway, here is what I saw.

So, naturally, I started driving towards it. (Sorry, Mom!)

Here’s what I saw as I headed North.

I went as far as I could, until I reached the edge of a gated community, where I set up camp for a couple hours.

It was madness.

The smoke was unbelievable.

It started to rain a little too much ash for my taste, so I went home.

But later on, I came back. A few hotspots had come over the ridge, and looked pretty bad:

Here are a couple videos I took:

I’m really hoping they can get this thing under control soon. It’s exciting, and interesting to look at, but I’m really getting worried for those folks in La Cañada.

    damn, this thing is getting big I guess so much for my favorite snowboard shop cause it is/ was in La Canada (note my keyboard is not mexican and therefore it really does say the Canada). Although I have to say the real magic of this is that I am such my typical self mess that I didn’t know where the fire was till I read this which means you are my official news outlet. Report well.
