San Diego County on Fire

This is what the sun looked like at about 4 pm this afternoon from my back yard.

There are currently two fairly large wild fires burning in San Diego's east county. The one responsible for this smoke is east of Ramona along the Highway 78. High Santa Ana winds are making the fires essentially unstoppable, and the fire departments are taking the approach of trying to evacuate the communities most likely in its path. Not sure if it'll get this far west like the big fires back in 2003, but the winds are supposed to continue for the next couple of days.
