Anyone following the news on the fire in Santa Barbara?

Thanks goodness the winds aren't as bad as last night.

If it was called the H1N1 FIRE it would be all over the media.

Yeah my wife was up there last night on a business trip (thelovelady.com) and said it was pretty bad. It was about a mile and a half from them. She was able to leave and come home though..

Hopefully the lack of posting about this fire means that the RDC familia is clear of this horrible fire. Flying to SoCal tonight so might get a birds-eye few of this thing.

500 acres burned so far!

This fire is farther away from us then the last one, so to get to us it would have to go threw the area that just recently burned. So hope that means our house should be safe.

The fire is at about 1300 acres now, no containment, and the winds are unpredictable. There's no guess yet on how many homes are burned but quite a few.

Seen the fire on the news last night,Tragic!!! Living in S.D been through a couple of serious fires in recent years,I worked a water truck 144 hrs strait with little sleep.Almost got burned over ,would have if not for one smart CDF guy that back fired at just the right moment!!! Fire is a living thing!!! Awesome experience!!!!! Its a big play on your emotions..You can't help but be impressed with the power of it,and at the same time the devistation of it all!! Being in well drilling/well pump bis,afterwards there is a lot of work to be done..


P.S. If you are ever in the path of a fire and you here the train coming you better get out of the way!!!!!!
