Movie Description
The Old Fire of October 2003 nearly devestated all mountain communities in the San Bernardino Mountains. The first started in the foothills in highland and quickly took out hundreds of structures at the northern most part of Waterman Canyon. It eventually spread into the mountains driven by high winds and caused the evacuations of Lake Arrowhead, Crestline, Running Springs, Big Bear, and most mountain communities in the SBD Mountains. The fight went on for well over a week. Hundreds of homes were lost, but most were spared. This audio and video captures the event from the start until the final evacuation of the BigBearScanner.

Yeah, with the wind almost directly out of th4 south, I think the lifting is enhanced.

Impressive already, orographic lifting really squeezing moisture out over there. Much needed! Send it our way.

There's a few isolated light showers around the area, but the main frontal boundary is now beginning to move into LA County, so still a good couple hours out from us....
