        Glad you (and the cars) are OK, Dave.

        500,000 people evacuated. This is major

            Bob, I have a co-worker in Murietta and was in contact with her all day. Aside from the smoke, the area's in no immediate danger.

            The air quality is horrendous. Here's what it looked like outside my house at 7AM...



            ...and here's what it looked like at 7PM.



            And Oceanside has some of the cleaner air in the county.

                Thank you all for your concern.
                I'm good~ others maybe not so much~ pray for them, not me...

                One other note here. In all my watching and listening today I heard Mimi H. (a.k.a. 9Gwoman) on the radio (maybe tv broadcast on the radio?) and she talked about trying to get her 'classic cars' out of there if need be. It sounded to me that the fires were very close to her place. [:0] I had no luck reaching her or husband Bob, though. [V]
                I'm sure there are others that we should be worried for as well...

                    Of course, lives are the primary focus in a debacle like this, but listening to some of the survivors tell of their harrowing escapes, you just KNOW some neat old vehicles (not necessarily Studebakers) probably bought it. I can't imagine trying to cope with something like that. I think alot of us harbor what, in effect, are mini-museums of vintage stuff and family heirlooms that we'd hate to see lost.[V] A for instance would be my horn button collection. I doubt it could ever be assembled again - especially since I have some prototype buttons. Not the end of the world if they were reduced to ashes, but I'd rather they survived me.[|)]

                    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                        Thanks, Clark. We got an e-mail from our friends this morning. They said they are so far "in" the city of Murietta that they are only bothered with smoke and ash, that the fires seemed to be threatening mostly homes surrounded by brush and trees, etc...of which they have none and are far from same.

                        Still, they are transplanted midwesterners who always wanted to escape the snow and ice of their native Rockford IL and live in the land of milk & honey, so there they are! (I had told him I thought his fall frivolity had gotten out of hand, that this was not a midwestern hayride and weenie roast!) [:0] BP

                            Bob/MrBiggs - I agree with you that lives are the important thing. I did hear of a guy in CA that restores cars and then sells them. He just finished up a 1957 Thunderbird and brought it home from his shop a couple of days ago. It and his home burned up. Last night I got thinking about a fire. It is true that the house and contents are just stuff, but much of what is here is not replaceable, like generations of family stuff and my automotive items that include one of a kind and rare items.
