The Cedar fire (to the north) burned from Ramona (which is to the northeast of Poway on this map, about where those two roads go off the map), pretty much to the 805 and as far south as the 52 freeway. Hit or miss on some areas, of course, but Scripps Ranch is devastated and the fire is currently burning down Clairmont Mesa Boulevard, which is in that area between 805 and 163. Navy housing is there, too. This one has burned over 100,000 acres.
The third fire they are calling Paradise and it is way to the north.
We prepared as best we could, of course. Packed the vehicles with the photos, cat supplies, and a change of clothes.
The cat carrier is ready, and fish is in his travel jar.
But it doesn't look like we'll need to leave.
