Thanks to ‘MattFromConcord’ for this photo of ash on his vehicle in Pleasant Hill this morning.

Did you have ash on your vehicle this morning? If so, what city do you live in?

I had ash my truck last night in Martinez.

yup people’s house’s just floating around in the air. This fire was not a normal fire. In fact it defied the laws of physics.

Yep, ash on my car in Martinez. The inside of my house occasionally smells like smoke from the fans in the bathrooms.

I just was watching that vid. One here the guy says “here is my sons car in the bedroom” his car is upside down!
Something way wrong.

This is what’s available for commercial ships – Low powered.

All the house fires in that video were extinguished. The ones in the North Bay were allowed to burn (stoked by the wind, even) until they burned out by themselves. Big difference.

Ash on my car & floating in the air near DVC.

I be pretty amazed if there was because I use my garage for what was intended. 😉

Nope nothing on the rental car in Hawaii. Back in WC who cares…we don’t. We’ll come back when it’s over.

Ash on our cars in Walnut Creek.

hmmmm October 12, 2017 at 5:18 PM

What is up with #2 Kris/ Conspiracy Theorist not realizing rubber tires are burning on a truck?

And the water heaters and stovetop/ovens in the debris?

Is she deliberately being unintelligent? Or is she genuinely not smart?

Concord off Ayers Rd…

Ash at our south PH home this morning. Covered patio furniture, wheel barrows, air conditioner.

I had ash on my car this morning, I live two complexes down from the Camelback apartment that caught on fire, thought the ash may have been lingering around.

I had assumed that everyone in the Claycord area saw some ash but it seems from the comments that it was mainly in Martinez, PH, and I assume northeast WC. I’m in northeast WC on the PH/WC border and got a light sprinkle of ash. If I had not known about the fires I likely would not notice it or have recognized what it was.

@hmmmm #15 – Conspiracy theorists actively discard information that does fit with their model. For example, they will ignore the affects of air drafts and wonder how burning kerosene (aka jet fuel) can weaken structural steel to the point that it triggers the collapse of a building. Blacksmiths have been working metals for 7,000 years using charcoal. We also use charcoal in our aluminum sided BBQ grills and yet those don’t melt. Play mysterious music and think about that…
