Is Anyone Else Creeped Out By This Santa Ana ? Some Reports on the Relationship Between Climate Change and The Santa Ana Winds & Fires - Don't Miss Esquire Article - UPDATE @ 7:07 PM BIG FIRE BEHIND COLONIA CONSTITUCION IN ROSARITO BEACH - TOWN FULL OF SMOKE - PEOPLE WEARING FACE MASKS - BUSINESSES ARE MOSTLY SHUT DOWN - ZETA HAS THE UPDATES

 - Update/Edit @ 7:07 pm:

Mike just went into town to pick up some mole, restaurant was closing down due to big fire to the east, behind Colonia Constitucion.  Half the restaurantes are shut down and most of the business are shut down, thick smoke in Rosarito, people on the street are wearing face masks. He could see flames. 

 So, be careful out there you guys, guess we're going to have leftovers yuck, I was looking forward to the chicken soup with special chile mix and lime, oh well.  Here, winds were very high all morning since 6:00am with a brief respite for a couple of hours now they are building high again, dirt and dust everywhere. 

Also, Mike notes electricity to the east of us on the other side of the Highway is out...we're good so far,  WiFi internet back on but don't know for how long.

Maybe a good idea to check out Zeta for updates, they are reporting there HAVE BEEN 38 FIRES JUST IN TIJUANA UNTIL 3:00PM THIS AFTERNOON, WITH MORE UPDATES ON THE OTHER MUNICIPALITIES, MORE FATALITIES, SCENIC HIGHWAY AND FREE ROAD TO ENSENADA SHUT DOWN FOR A PERIOD, FIRE AT PLAZA DEL MAR, WIND DAMAGE TO ZONA CENTRO TIJ ETC:


ZETA TIJUANA


 End edit.

 It's 1:50am and we're nervously waiting for the winds, which are supposed to be worse than the last set. So far, nothing .  The focus yesterday was to get prepared just in case we have to evacuate, which doesn't seem really likely however you never know...and the last time around let's face it, we were on our own. So maybe the worse scenario will be power outages, no internet and more dust to clean up.

A few years ago we had a very strong Santa Ana and a few fires down here and I had mentioned the relationship between this "natural" event and climate change - which then we were calling "global warming".  That went over like a lead balloon down here.  La Loca is at it again OMG ! So, here are some short articles and studies:
