Stay safe - Fires NOT by Palm Springs
Tom's note: Thanks for your concern. However, the news media is way overplaying Palm Springs being involved. the fire is at Mountain Center moving towards Idlewild, AWAY from Palm Springs. We have no smoke, no ash as the smoke is going to Orange County and San Diego County.
A local commentator said calling this the palm Springs fire is crazy. It's like a fire in malibu Hills being called the Santa Monica fire even though it's 20 miles away.
The South Coast Air Quality Management Distric gives our air quality a Green for Good which is the highest rating. Orange County is a yellow because of the smoke.
So thanks for worrying, but you don't have to.
