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.

Must be one of Benny's All Hallows Eve inspired mid-slope inversions. With the partial eclipse today and all. I'm just sayin'.

I felt sorry for them, and they seemed like a decent family unit but it did not seem right. I will keep an eye on the news. DHS is not the smartest place to get out of your car at night. Or even in the daytime in some areas.
I have seen some very strange things going on. Very friendly girls I had a couple who offered to cook me dinner

Probably a wise decision. Those folks can be wise and resourceful. and might be making a living off of situations like yours.

Not much to write about from my end but I did have something happen a week or so ago.
I went to the local pizza hut and while I was waitng a Mexican family came in man, woman, mother in law and son. I saw they were careful about what they ordered. I got my pie and left. As I was starting to pull out the man and his son came out. He approached me about possibly giving them a ride.
Obviously from Mexico as he spoke zero English.
I never give rides, and it was late at night and it would have been ten miles out of my way.
It would have been a very dangerous move on my part. While they seemed O.K. I cannot figure out why they were there in the first place, and how they finally got "home" There was a Wendy's much closer to where they started.
Any thoughts on the situation?

Just kiddin' guys. I always enjoy scrolling down to see what the haps were around dawn.

Well. MGJ, I most humbly accept your accolades with respect to the late nite show. I doubt BGS and I could hope to attain the longevity of the morning show, what with us articulating full sentences, even paragraphs, and all. It eventually begins to drag on one with all the key strokes and all, not to mention the elevated risk of carpal tunnel syndrome.
