SDGE WARNS 170,000 TO BE PREPARED FOR POWER OUTAGES AS HIGH WINDS HIT AREA | East County Magazine

December 6, 2017 (San Diego’s East County) – High winds fueling devastating fires in Los Angeles are set to hit San Diego County tomorrow, with gusts of 70 mph or more in some areas. Currently no fires are burning in San Diego County, though smoke from a fire in Mexico is visible near the border.  But the situation could turn perilous quickly if new fires start.  National Weather Forecaster Alex Tardy says Santa Ana winds could blow a fire in the inland area all the way to the coast.

I'll take my pump in tomorrow if I get the chance. But it sounds like the winds will be so intense they'll be no fighting it. The news shows pictures of whole neighborhoods burned out. You can't stand up to 50 plus mph wind. Damn oh damn. I just hope no fire starts upwind of us. We got evacuated in 2007 and I swore I would never do it again. And now, here I am, fatalistically thinking we may have to clear out. They say the really important things you can save. I hope that's true, though I sort of doubt it. We're insured for what that's worth.

We are forecast for gusts up to 90 m.p.h. though I'll bet that's for exposed spots on the west coast. No fire risk though; an advantage of a temperate climate and trees that won't burn anyway. Good luck, Smudger.
