Photographers Snip Snap

Here's the view from the second floor cut across on Phelps Hall where I work at UCSB. Not too pleasant. Last August the Santa Barbara back country burned for a month (yes, an entire month), and while it made things mightily apocalyptic, those of us who live in SB luckily were never threatened. This Gap Fire, however, is already on the coast side of the mountains.

Here's hoping the winds stay down and the firefighters can do their mighty work.

Yikes, hope things quiet down there.
Just heard Soul Mining for the first time in many, many years and Uncertain Smile just brought you right into my living room. Wow. What a great song, still, after 20 years.
Wonder if Lyoyd Cole sounds as good.

Damn that's an eerie sight. How you guys have any trees left at all is a total mystery to Rickey.

Rickey, I gotta agree with you on wondering how there are trees left. But, there are, and they keep burning. I've moved to a room in the house where I can't see the fire anymore. It makes me feel better.
