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.

Just so sad what is happening to our youth where they think shooting is the answer to their problems.

Thanx, Benny. Always love your explainations and good work you and Craig put into the site. And the other Mods as well.

No, it doesn't work quite like that, in fact winds would really help stir up the air and equalize temperatures; it's when we have such stagnant/still air that things reverse, warm air rises and a pock of cool air sinks just below. It won't necessarily spill over the dam and mostly settles into the lowest parts of the Valley which would be more towards the east end of town, pretty much Division eastward, Baldwin Lake/Shay Meadow/Erwin, etc. Right now it would be a bit warmer around the lake given the current lake temperature @ about 60 degrees. A much more detailed explanation can be found here. [Click Here]

Is it the prevailing west wind that is preventing the air from sinking out of the valley?

I just so thought that cold air would drain down the valley and over the dam. What is the geography that maintains that inversion?
