    that pic was taken in the middle of the day. my car is covered with ashes from the nearby brush fires. the ash in the air is so thick it has obscured the sun and lowered visibility. i hope they cancelled the races because the track is actually CLOSER to the fires.

    here is a pic i took a couple days ago. it shows the layer of ash-dust hovering near the ground. there are 3 big brush fires and theyve been burning for a few days now. some people have already lost their homes. the fires are about 30-40 miles from where i live.

    One of the mods from my other board lives extremely close to the brush fires in Rancho Cucamongo...he's probably 2 days away from having to be evacuated. I hope everything works out for him and you as well.

    snow kicks ass... i look forward to winter every year... there is no better time to be on the roads having fun than in the middle of a snow storm... all the idiots that cant drive usually get off the roads by 7pm leaving the roads open for people that actually like driving in the snow, and the plow guys... cops arent even an issue in the snow shit last year i probly ran from 10 cops, they cant drive in snow for shit

    we usually dont get that much rain either (this year was unusual)
