santiago fire — Fotopedia
taken from the south end of lake mission viejo at around midnight on tuesday.

the glow off in the upper left of the picture is the modjeska portion of the fire. the middle section is in the hills near the intersection of santiago canyon road and live oak canyon road, and the brightest spots are above live oak canyon - towards hamilton trail maybe, but i'm really not certain. it might not be that far down.

the fire appears to be moving more up the mountain - they are saying on the news that the winds are shifting and blowing more inland (as of 1:30am 10/24).

Extreme weather

Extreme weather includes unusual, severe or unseasonal weather; weather at the extremes of the historical distribution—the range that has been seen in the past. Often, extreme events are based of a location’s recorded weather history and defined as lying in the most unusual ten percent. In recent years some extreme weather events have been attributed to human-induced global warming, with studies indicating an increasing threat from extreme weather in the future.
