Tonight's X-Games was pretty darn cool. To start things off, while I knew we had some pretty decent pics, I had NO idea how freaking awesome they were. Let's just say that when we asked the first attendant how we were to get to our seats, and his reply was "Act like your famous, your seats are through the VIP door," I was pretty floored! So, this was part our view from our seats for Skate Board Big Air Rail Grind, BMX Big Air Finals, and Moto-X Best Trick:
Tomorrow is more Moto-X with some street BMX, but I'm really looking forward to the Moto-X Freestyle event, then Sunday it's Rally Cars, X-Games style. Some pictures to leave with (sorry they are blurry and all....still getting used to the new camera...guess I should read that manual, although I think it's just not equipped to take great action shots).

Robinson with some huge air:
Moto Best Trick Jump (best one my camera took sadly - it's pretty blurry):
Well although we had a pretty good summer/fall with very minimal fires this year, it looks like nature has decided to make it happen later than usual for So Cal. I went to my hair appointment and decided to take some pictures on the way (yah not very safe, but when everyone is driving slow it's kinda okay) needless to say, my poor hair stylist was in tears when I arrived because the fire is about to hit her parents' house, and the place was buzzing with similar stylists having to rush out to save pets and help family members - I hope all is okay for them and their families. I think, for now, we are okay - one of the evacuation centers is the High School that is one block up the street from us. Here are the pics I took with my camera phone:
This is taken from my driveway looking towards one of the fires (currently there are two going - one is directly to the east of us, the direction of this photo, and the other is directly to the north of us).
Not a very good picture, and not very wise to be doing while driving, but here is the east view while driving.
