Well aren't I dramatic...

Fire is kinda burning down my city (The MacOS9Lives headquarters is 2 miles from photo), air quality sucks, but hey as long as computer is working maybe I can get some songs done :)

That looks horrible. I hope you (and everyone else) make it through unscathed.

To be clear, when you say headquarters, do you mean the computers the forum runs on?

No, site is safe... and the moderators can carry on... I hope to be fine, it's a SoCal thing, earthquakes and fires, but the sunny days in Dec. (75 degrees) keeps us here

Okay, we expect updates today - ASAP!

Latest info now from internet (6 a.m. / C.S.T) is now at least 8 hours old.
And with the Fairview fire (Hemet) and the Radford fire (Big Bear)
both areas under evac orders last night.

Take great care, out there. And do keep us all posted!

UPDATE:

OK... so house was 2 blocks from evacuation perimeter yesterday, but it was that was was "advised, not mandatory"  over 20,000 acres burned; air quality sucks even inside; office was a little better... expecting rain on Sat., they estimate 7 more days until contained.

It's basically all up to the wind, if it stays calm or blowing south, you guys are stuck with me, if it goes North I could get in the "Mandatory Evacuation" area, all MacOS9Lives backup drives are already packed along with guitars and ready to go
