The best map to see what's burning is this one. Only have the MODIS satellite fire detection box checked. Uncheck any others.
Red==active fire
Orange==burning out

Will do that for sure. Is there smoke where you are at? We had lots of smoke this summer in western Oregon. It makes a big difference if the wind isn't moving the smoke out. Can you see any fires from your place?

It was real smoky at my house today, not so much at mom's. The fires are all to the East running North & South of Mom's and the wind's been out of the NW blowing smoke & ash away from Mom's and towards my home. I can see smoke coming from the Geyserville fire from mom's in Healdsburg.

It's bushfire season down here every year and some state or district gets scorched, a bit like California. I bet there's even some Eucalyptus around there for effect. I was fortunate when some scores of homes were lost on my road and in the local township. Photos of a family sheltering in the waters beside a jetty even made international news. The fire passed around the farms buffering my little corner of the coast, toasting the wooded hills and flats nearby.

The smoke lingered for days while things burnt out and this, along with following the continued alerts and updates, patrolling for embers without power, running water and local telco mobile network tower out, car almost empty of fuel...I had neighbors but the first official contact as after several days when emergency crews did a property audit, checking who was there or gone to safety, the police tape on driveways a reminder for months later.

...cycling the morning after into town to find smouldering stubs of utility poles, some still suspended by wires, others cut hurriedly clearing the road by emergency crews.... ruin after ruin of houses completely destroyed, others surviving essentially unscathed. Seeing the broken bottles and discarded cans now exposed on bare blackened earth verges.

Take good care Mike and be sure to get some time away somewhere peaceful when circumstances allow to recuperate.

All the fire maps indicated clear near my place so we left Mom's and went home yesterday AM. I got up to pee the dog at 3:30AM and the SRPD was banging on all the doors to get out NOW! No wind, nothing burning on the fire maps but I could see the flames coming over the hill from Sugar Loaf State park maybe 1/4 mi to the SE. We have relocated to my brothers in Windsor.

Mandatory evac notice on nixle.com now from adobe rd to Calistoga rd all areas N & S of HWY 12.

dang!

Some chance of rain only on Thursday, hopefully the wind is not going to blow too much. Fingers crossed.
