    Some guys I work with lost their homes in paradise. I'm in chico and its come down the hill. About a mile or so from the evacuation zone. Paradise is almost a total loss. Hospital and schools gone. Here are some pics of the smoke plume at work this morning. 20181108_153904.jpg 20181108_085810.jpg 20181108_085821.jpg 20181108_085814.jpg And here's an obligatory pic of the 6.5 Creed side charger I finished up when I got home. Can't let it get to you, gotta keep on keeping on. 20181108_203754.jpg

    Prayers out to you, last year the Goodwin fire in Arizona burnt past my community, all it would have taken was a slight wind shift and it all would have been ashes. We had the guns, ammo, dogs and documents all loaded up ready to go. You think you have time for more stuff, you don't. You figure out real fast what's important. Good luck FWoo45

    Be safe!! My wife's aunt and uncle live(d?) in Paradise and had to evacuate yesterday. Luckily they have and Airstream trailer and were able to load a lot of their valuables and important personal belongings and take them along. We're hoping their house is safe but it doesn't look good.

    Thanks guys. I'm alright. It was a bit hairy last night and early this morning. I left early for work as I was up all night anyway. Drove down to where they closed the roads a mile or so from the house. The fire had been there but they had it out. Sure are some brave men and women first responders kicking ass and keeping us safe. It's still a mess down here. So smokey that everyone forgot how to drive. I know lots of folks who lost it all. Reports are that paradise isn't a total loss like previously believed. Some of the footage of folks escaping is pretty harrowing. Being young(er) and single it's easy for me to throw the guns and dog in the truck and haul ass. Not so much for some others. I appreciate it but send your prayers towards those that got hit hard. @WC145, let me know if there's something your wife's family needs. Not sure I could really do anything but I am around.

    @FWoo45 We have smoke down here from up your way. Anything you need, I'm only a couple of hours away man. Or if you need to get some fresher air we can make room. Take care brother.

    Maybe you should bring yer guns down so they dont get smoke damage.;)

    Thanks! From their notes it sounds like they're okay, still don't know about the house.

    Its 4:15pm, the sky is normally clear this time of day and couldn't look at the sun let alone take a photo. The smoke is geting thicker down here. Starting to smell a slight bit smokey. Yesterday we could see it some but not smell it.

    I appreciate it but I think I'll be alright. I'll save that trip for after I get a present back from Joe and Eric. ;) I think it would be more fun.

    Death toll is up to 9 right now and they're not even in the assessment stage it's still a rescue mission as far as the first responders are concerned.
