The fires combined have burned approximately 170,000 acres* so far. Tonight the winds will pick up again.

*170,000 acres is roughly 22% of the size of Rhode Island, 68,800 hectares, or 39.38 square leagues.

That's a lot of hogsheads!

The winds are already picking up. They are expecting gusts of 50 mph overnight. The fire is likely to grow quite a bit overnight. Not good at all.

You think that's bad, you should have seen it when the old Dun Cow caught fire.

Is a Maine Portland measurement larger or smaller than an Oregon Portland?

Well I'm glad my part of the world can join in the Trumpocalypse. I can't wait for the FEMA paperwork inspectors and supportive tweets from Donnie Two-Scoops. I'm sure we won't notice all the DEA, INS and the new DoJ Anti-Sodomy SEAL soldiers poking around looking for illegal gay Muslim immigrant drug smugglers with huge calves who also voted for Hillary three times each. This will also be the perfect opportunity for the CIA to plant that little device they got from Russia but, when set off, will be blamed on North Korea thus giving us a nuclear Gulf of Trumpkin Resolution.

/ That last part is way too possible.

Wineries can be rebuilt quickly but vineyards take a minimum of three years to start producing quality grapes. Add another year minimum to age a decent red wine and you are looking at 4 - 5 years without revenue.

/good luck and godspeed

if you or someone you know lives close by, just PAY ATTENTION.   Firestorms form and spread in literally minutes.  If you think you're safe b/c you're not on a hill or at the foothills, well look at the Santa Rosa aftermath.   There's no stopping a wall of flame moving at 50 mph.

Aren't, or weren't some of those vines like 100 years old?

I recently moved away from Santa Rosa, after living there for 20 years. It is weird seeing my old hometown on the front page of USA Today two days in a row.

An old "Round Barn," built in 1899 was totally destroyed. It was one of a handful of historic round barns in the country. I was really sad to see the picture of it engulfed in flames. On the bright side, my former slum-lord landlord of 15 years, who evicted me after my brother died, has a house a few blocks away. First he posted a 30-day Eviction notice on my front door, and the next week posted a 7-day Eviction notice. Due to my work schedule, I only had time to pack up about half my stuff into storage. I hate to schadenfreude, so I hope my former woosh-bag landlord was able to gather a couple memories before his mansion became a cinder.

Santa Rosa Junior College, where I got my Journalism degree, is just a block outside the mandatory Evacuation Zone and will be closed until next Sunday, at least. They have oak trees there over 300 years old.

One of the totally destroyed neighborhoods, Coffey Park, was where I worked for five years. It is frightening to see blocks and blocks of ashes where houses used to be. Sadly, a great new brewery, Cooperage, was located in that area. They opened in a warehouse park surrounded by wine storage.

Russian River Brewery, home of Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger, is only about a mile or two from a couple of the fire lines.

But one thing I have never seen on the news is how many Cannabis growers have been inconvenienced by this massive wildfire, which is about 0% contained and could expand with the 40+ mph winds expected. Lots of outdoor growers, of course, but quite a few folks also relied on indoor lighting systems, and 50,000 people are without power. I guess that's why they call it Gone-ja.

I was SCA for about three years, until I realized it was (where I lived) just a collection of drunks that occasionally wore armor between drinks.

The land was probably burned every few years, until the vines got planted.

Sadly this is also happening. A grower posted a before and after. They lost not only their entire crop but their seed bank, thus their strains they developed are gone forever. This disaster is not going away soon and will cost the California economy billions -- with no help coming from the Feds.
