1 Taffy 10 months ago The fires raging here are miles from where I am in the San Fernando valley but the fall out is nuts. Today the sun was blocked out to where I could look at it with no problem through the haze of ash that has covered the valley. It's literally snowing ash here and the fog it produced has been terrible. I can't imagine what it's like to be closer to the fires. Now I get a sense of what you guys up north had to deal with.
