Default These Fires aren't stopping...

The house I lived in for 5 years and just moved out of a week ago was in a mandatory evacuation zone. It took a couple days to hear from my friends there -- they're o.k., but had to bail out in the middle of the night. They took what they could and left a big bowl of water and a 16lb bag of kibble for the cats and got the fuck out.

Luckily the house made it, but it was pretty close. They can't go back there yet but were able to check on the cats and all were accounted for.

One more rough night ahead looks like and hopefully things get contained better...but it's pretty sketchy around here right now (Napa, Sonoma, Marin counties).

Who leaves their pets in a fire-strewn evacuation zone?

Good point.

He's lying, obviously. Didn't know you were down with the Baphomet Elites TOC.

A smart cat will look after itself Long before it comes to check if you're OK. My guess is that they couldn't find them anywhere because they'd already fled, and the water and kibble was for when the fires had been contained, but they couldn't return home - so that in the meantime there would be something to eat and drink.

Indoor cats are different because you can probably find them and take them with you. But an indoor/outdoor cat might be hard to find. Especially one that's smart/instinctive enough to know that a fire's coming.

Maybe he's testing his cats to see whether they are MK Ultra drones.

Leaving your pets unattended is just begging for the government to replace their eyeballs with GoPro technology, either way.

This is (was) Coffey Park in Santa Rosa. Our digs are roughly a mile to the southwest.




and yes, the cats are often outside at night and were Sunday evening, so when the shtf, there was no sign of them.

Nah, the cats survived. Somehow the firestorm which was eating up a football field every 3 seconds didn't come our way.


Fake news...? lol. fuck, I wish. It looks like china with all the smoke and folks wearing masks all day now.

You must spread false flags around before giving rep again.

The air quality in the Bay Area right now is as bad as Beijing



San Franciscans woke up Thursday morning breathing air as polluted as that in Beijing, a city known for its suffocating gray haze.

Some people wore masks as they walked or rode their bikes to work—an uncommon sight in the Bay Area.

It's supposed to get worse before it gets better they say. 29 dead last I heard, 400 missing. 2000 homes gone, 20,000 evacuees. There's 600 kids at Cardinal Newman high school that have to find a new one for the rest of the year.


if you scan up twice on the minus button with this, you'll see the 5 fires they're trying to keep from merging. If so, goodbye wine country.

As it is, speculation is all the ash may lay waste to the soil anyway. I'm in Marin county now (as of the 1st)...fire came close to Novato by razing past Sears Point Raceway, but there's a swamp and a river to jump there, so its buffeted from that side, but its a straight path to Marin if it streaks down Petaluma way, which it shouldn't but I ain't ruling out anything anymore...its close enough as it is.

It was reported at 10pm Sunday that several fires broke out at once all over Sonoma county. PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric) may be on the hook, as it appears it was their poles went down and set off the transformers.

There was, at this very moment, one of the most unusual wind-storms we've ever had here. 74mph gust were reported and with all the dry brush acting as tinder it swept across the valley, westward into downtown Santa Rosa at a 100 yards per every 3 seconds, jumped the six and eight lane portions of highway 101 and into regular subdivisions away from the hills and spread across the upper regions of Santa Rosa.

It missed our house to the north of us by a mile... a friend of ours near Coffey Park had first responders saving his house because he was across the street from an elementary school and the firemen set up perimeter on his side of the block. His house made it. The neighbors house behind him didn't.


how it all started is on everyone's mind. but the authorities are busy and CalFire doesn't publicize speculation, which there is plenty of among everyone else.

nah, maybe China though, especially if they come in and sweep up a bunch of land ...but if you want to get con-theory's going, plenty of liberals in this area that are open to just about anything at this point. There's always the arsonist possibility, but several started virtually at once sunday night and that highly suggest something other than happenstance, wind knocking over poles or not.

these pics and vid illustrate the damage pretty well. the business-minded snark in the comments is typical Zerohedge banter.

No. not everything is fake, so that's not how I think. The storms that ravaged Houston and P.R. have anomalies that present a case for weather manipulation, but you have to dig and really research such things to get to be convinced or nearly so to make a claim it's at least plausible.


These fires...I'm in it, but not unaware of the rumours of how this thing actually got started (many factors contribute to the scale, so what ignited it all is the question).

That's a question everyone here is concerned with and Arson is always a possibility and top of mind...to more exotic theories I don't care to get into at this time, I could use a mask and they're hard to find right now.
