    Just as a heads up from the latest news about the Malibu fires. As any of you know when any section of PCH or one of the main canyons that connect the San Fernando valley to Pacific Coast hwy Malibu sections / Santa Monica Mnt areas will cause a horrible amount of back up of traffic on the US101 and Interstate 405.

    Kanan Dume Rd - is open but when you get to PCH you will only be able to go north on SR-1 PCH
    Malibu Canyon Rd - closed
    PCH - from Malibu Canyon too Topanga Cny
    Topanga Canyon - closed & restricted access

    should you need to travel on the 101 & 405 tomorrow - give you self alot of time and also avoid it as much as possible or early in the morning would be best and the same for returning as well.

    OK jjay, you've said that in two different posts. Enough!! Lots of folks with Fcars, have horses that are part of the family as well. Hopefully, no choices between the two have to be made because someone stayed put way longer than they should.

    man this is so bad its like 1993 over again.

    Im sorry to hear about the losses and it could have been a lot worse. I just wish the winds would die down and stop.

    those who have to commute in this week and you commute route is around the follwing
    Santa Monica Mtn Rd's
    +
    PCH - Santa Monica too Oxnard
    +
    101
    +
    405

    allow your self a lot more commuting time.

    good luck and be safe.

    Not joking. Levity.. get a grip. There is no one here more passionate about staying safe in a fire. Its the internet learn to read what people are saying not what they are typing. Really people. Come one. I happen to be a certified Aircraft fire fighter. Went to a school in the Navy. I have been a number of fires as fighting it and its no picnic. Dont get an itchy typing finger because one person takes my typing out of context...max love for all of ya..


    Ok im off my soapbox return to your regularly sceduled program...

    The wind seems to have stopped. What I don't get is why they stop dropping the water. You would think they would ramp it up. After all they could see where the fire is way better at night. I bet they could get the fires under control faster if they kept the water drops going at night.

    It's cool jjay. Ask Racer98-------I have an auto response to whatever alludes to or suggests a lack of sensitivity regarding animals-------yes, I'm one of "those".

    While you're on the soapbox, choose your words carefully. A good person, and we know that you are one of them, should not be taken down by a poor or insensitive choice of wording.

    Now I'll get off my soapbox---------

    Everyone out there----be safe.

    Hank

    Suggestion for all concerned: Before you have an 'auto response' take a deep one and count to ten. Then let rationality come out rather than emotions that you have to apologize for later.

    Patrick, I know you're reading this......

    Forget about buying cars, books and expensive dinners for girls you'll never, ever get.......

    Wake up, dry your eyes, wash your face, turn off that tivo'd "Tragic Breakup-Chapter 10" Oprah episode, get in your new car and drive your ass out to the BU to rescue some ugly, overweight heiress from her burning house and set your sorry ass self up for life!

    Jesus Christ, Do I have to tell you everything?

    I shot all day today in Topanga. PCH was closed, from the Valley side we all got in and out fine, but Pats being the only suitable sandwich place closed at 3, not staying open for hungry travellers when they did lock us in the canyon for those few short hours.
