San Diego Fires

Yesterday was strange due to high temperatures from the Santa Ana Winds. We could see four separate fires from our office building and the Poinsettia Fire in Carlsbad was only 2 miles away in the same canyon system. I had to shut down our main computer server due to the power surges coming from damaged power lines. Most of my coworkers left early.

Driving home from work, I took the picture above of the smoke from the San Marcos Fire blowing West over Batiquitos Lagoon.

By this morning, the Poinsettia Fire was pretty contained and I could see the blackened hills as I drove into work on the reopened Palomar Airport Road. After lunch, we could see more two more fires erupt in the distance at Camp Pendleton.
