The entire Malibu community is battling the fires in the area. Let's echo Mendiant and send our prayers to the students and staff of P-dine.

Does anyone have an update on what is happening at the school? Anything on their blog site?

A good ways east of Pepperdine, yet it's been so smoky that the smell was as bad inside as outside (yesterday). A bright blue sky became orangish and grim.

Meanwhile, things are pretty rough in this town's Canyon Country section. The Wm S. Hart High School District, as a result, has shut down school for two days.

School's expected to be up and running on Wednesday.

All of southern california is on fire. Down to Orange County and San Diego. SDSU had classes cancelled today and they will be tommorow as well. Tough getting them under control when resources are spread so thin

I was supposed to start a three week jury trial in L.A. yesterday. So I flew down Sunday night, and the Pacific Coast was just aglow in a deep orange as we flew in above the canyon country and south on our trajectory toward LAX. Pretty wild seeing that kind of fire from the air. There were hundreds of pockets of flames visible. Wild.

I learn early Monday that my client had to evacuate his house in San Diego on Sunday night, and that the flames had incinerated the house of his next door neighbor. Client is a bit spooked to say the least and not exactly focused on our trial.

So we show up for trial Monday morning, and the bailiff informs us that the judge is not coming in because his house in Malibu has been evacuated. A couple of opposing attorneys from L.A. are in the same boat. There are not enough jurors showing up to accomodate all the trials being called that morning anyway.

So we are on standby and our trial is being indefinitely delayed. I flew back to Seattle yesterday afternoon while we wait for a trial date, and the entire L.A. basin was just covered in a haze of smoke. And the smoke went out in the Pacific as far as the eye could see.

Wild times in the L.A. area. Here's hoping they weather improves and they can get things under control soon.

At least four more fires can be added to the current fire map, with several in north SD county threatening to merge into mega fires. Wind still blowing from east ne, pushing fires toward heavily populated coastal suburbs. Estimated that over 2000 homes and businesses have been destroyed thus far, with over 500,000 people evacuated from their homes. The good news: The 50 mph Santa Ana east winds of yesterday have calmed somewhat today and are expected to switch to an onshore (westerly) direction by Wednesday pm. State and national firefighters and aircraft are making a big difference in protecting urban areas on city's edges. Unbelievably, there has only been one death attributable to the fires while four firemen have been seriously burned. Fire will probably be the worst in CA history (re property loss) after the fat lady sings.
