When Fire Last in the Hill-sides Bloom'd

This is more for those out of the Santa Barbara region, but if you want to see why the Jesusita Fire put the fear of god into us here, go check out this progression fire map the county put up. Note, especially, the huge jump from May 7, 4 pm to May 8, 7 am. That's when all hell broke loose and it was easy to imagine much of the town would just burn down.

And if you want to know where Amy, the pups, and I fit on the map, we live above the W in the words Earl Warren Showgrounds. And, yes, the tops of the W are pokey....

Good lord that's close. My in-laws live in Myrtle Beach and the MB fire was just about as close to their house, if I read the legend correctly.

Glad you are safe and sound.
