We are trapped by the fires and the Santa Anna winds at Chula Vista RV Park South of San Diego. We were supposed to leave Monday, but Fires to the North and 60 mph winds to the East cancelled that plan. We have been sitting here inhaling ashes for 2 days.

The roads are opening up now and the winds are supposed to drop off tomorrow, so hopefully we will be on our way then.

the park has had a large influx of evacuees who are lucky enough to have RVs.

Wish us luck, although I guess we are lucky one of the 1200+ houses that hve burned wasn't ours

Good Luck. I live at the top of the Cajon Pass and work in San Bernardino. Monday I was able to get home via a mountain dirt road but yesterday I was "forced" to telecommute.

Today I am down in SanBerdoo breathing in all this junk.

Take care and keep us informed if your situation changes.

We came home today. The eastbound I-8 still had a lot of wind, but travel in high profile vehicles was not prohibeted, only not advisable. Most freeways in that area were open today. We were still seeing fires almost an hour east of San Diego. The coach and evrything in it smells like smoke. We didn't realize that until we got a breath of fresh air here in AZ.

Glad to hear you made it out safe and sound. It might be quite a chore to get rid of that smoke smell

Actually it wasn't to difficult to get it smelling better. I ran a couple loads of vineger thru the coffemaker to act as an airfreshner and shampooed the carpet. I left it closed up after the vineger to let it act.

PS, So yesterday the wind changes and now the smoke is coming to AZ to get me. The whole western horizon was covered with it last night and this morning I could smell it faintly.
