Southern California Santa Ana Fires

In case you haven't heard, the Santa Anas are here! It's an annual thing in Southern California, a really warm and forceful wind that blows you off your feet if you're not careful. It also gets blamed for the wildfires we host each Fall.

We've had them burn a circle around Simi Valley before, as recently as October of 2003, but so far all we've got is smoke covered skies from nearby fires.

Here's a pretty cool satellite image that shows some of what one radio weather man claimed last night was "skies are clear except where there's smoke in the air". DUH!!
