Novmber 25, 2008 At least for us. Warnings on local T.V. say that they're evacuating areas of the Tea Fire and Sycamore Canyon for mud slides (from the fires in Santa Barbara)...my old haunts from school. Devastating fires occur about ever decade or more out there...but not in such residential areas. College kids having fun with a bonfire? Hey, there's nothing wrong with that, as long as it wasn't totally obvious that the Santa Ana winds were going to blow at full steam at the same time as a freak heat wave. I never needed an expensive education to figure that out.
Nature heals in its own way. And god knows that we need every drop of this beautiful rain we can get!
