That Halloween Party must have been quite a formal one.

It requested that guests wear a Tie  ACK!

Awesome in the sense of awe-inspiring, not great:

Oh wow.  That second pic is just... incredible at showing the scale of the fires.  You know they're big and cover a lot of ground but for me, that one just has a lot of impact.

The last one is  Cry .

And I really hope someone's rescued those horses.

Unfortunately those pictures are of where I spent several years of my childhood.  Thankfully no family left in Paradise, but been pretty devastating for me to see a large part of my childhood go up flames.

The town is a major retirement community.  Big part of it is old people with limited mobility.  The fire first started around 6:30 AM and they were already ordering mass evacuation by noon, thats how fast is spread.  When I heard how fast it overtook the town, I knew it was going to be a complete disaster because of all the elderly there.  :(

Just to add on to all this, CalFire has been doing assessments of the fire damage and uploading so people can see if they have anything to come back to. Anything destroyed or damaged as a picture attached, but you can see the extent of the extreme damage done an entire city from all this:

Here's the house I lived in third grade, where I played Street Fighter 2 endlessly in arcades, and spent most of my time with friends deep in the forest that was right out the back yard of my house, speculating about government conspiracies and local legends/monsters as we built hidden forts to protect against such threats:

Isn't it "funny" how trees and brush (and a propane tank) just a hundred feet away appear fine?

No conspiracy theory intended, just the way fires work.

Yep.  Fire is pretty much living chaos theory in action.

Found this kinda interesting on that front:

As someone who lived in California and had to run when San Diego burned down 11 years ago, that’s absolutely correct. Fast moving fires aren’t fueled by large forests, they’re fueled by scrub brush and eucalyptus. California rains heavily every 4-6 years, it gets super green, then dries out and dies. Then it catches fire if it sparks before the next rain cycle. As the rain cycles become further spread apart this will only get worse. “Better forest management” that the talking idiots are blabbing about is already done where people live and wouldn’t have helped much here.

Heh, was going to SDSU when that happened.  Living in the middle of the city so I was fine, but man, the apocalyptic scene of being able to stare at the vague orange ball that was supposed to be the sun with no issue, as it rained ash non stop for 3 days straight, was an interesting experience.
