Lots of folks waking up to smoke and bad news today..The fire, though slowing, is still spreading.
Officials are urging Santa Barbara residents to conserve water as reservoir levels are running very low to sustain the firefighting effort. All this as the street-sweeping fleet went out with their giant water tanks today (which to me seems a little stupid for multiple reasons).
The Indy has reported that 2000-2500 acres have been burned (and counting).
Here is the Unofficial Evacuation Fire Map from Google. It's very helpful.
Best of luck to all of you who may be wondering about the status of your homes.
More updates very soon.
