For a more comprehensive account of the situation please see fellow Santa Barbaran Marco Fanelli’s blog. It’s packed with photos and facts. S’mores anyone?
NBC national news trucks are stationed 1/8th mile down the slope from my house… Our area is under evacuation warning. They say the “Gap Fire” has #1 priority in the state because of its proximity to homes. It has been suggested that the fact that Arnold Schwarzenegger has a house near here doesn’t hurt… Well, my bike is in the truck… Eli and his “Cat Cab” are where I can see them.
