    well this is interesting coming home from dinner smelling smoke and seeing tons of traffic coming down my street

    here's why
    Palmdale brush fire burns near homes | abc7.com

    notice it says Elizabeth Lake rd and 20th st
    I live on Elizabeth Lake rd and 25th st

    there are 20mph winds but they say they aren't evacuating
    (we're prepared just in case)
    and that it is moving away from us
    you can see the whole mountain on fire from my back fence

    Good to hear you're safe, but I wouldn't post your address on the Internet. Lots of creeps out there...

    That would be absolutely terrifying for me. Hope you remain untouched by the fire.

    in fact there are several suburbs in relations to the corners I posted, I'm crazy...not stupid
