New York's basically the same way with NYC being very liberal and the north of the state being rural conservatives, except instead of fires we have an uncomfortable proximity to New Jersey.

yeah, I was actually going to make the comparison that LA to Norcal is probably like NYC to Upstate New York, but I didn't know enough to make it myself.

We have a couple running gags for license plates around there.

1) New York license plates must be read in Palpatine's voice ("The EMPIRE State")
2) New Jersey license plates are a photographic representation of the New Jersey sky.

That sky is what you see when you look up anywhere between New Haven and Alexandria, VA

I wouldn't recommend looking down, either. Or breathing.

So I guess I'm under mandatory evac orders.

Camp Fire, for anyone who wants to spend the .8 seconds googling it.

See you on the other side!

Jesus... looking at the CalFire maps, the danger zone (not the "Actually on fire" zone), is something like half of all of NorCal.

Stay as safe as you can under the circumstances Friday.

Paradise is a total loss. My town is burning to the ground. House almost certainly gone, will be a miracle if it isn't.

A fire that was 10 acres this morning is now over 18000.

Sacramento Bee Report

The sky is pitch black outside.

I'm okay, I'm at a friend's house in Chico. I'm mostly sure they'll stop it if it tries to burn Chico as well.

Friend just texted me this pic someone took of my favorite place to eat in town:

That's on Clark, one of two main commercial roads in town. People are also reporting Skyway, the other main road, on fire.

It's just luck what burns and what doesn't now.

Fuck.

When you're somewhere you can stay for more than a few days, tell us what you need and where we can send stuff.

Bearadise will have to live on inside our hearts.

Seriously though, that's... dang. For what it's worth, we're rooting for you, and at least it's a relief to know you're unharmed.
