I took a little drive with my uncle around the Tea Fire burn area yesterday.
It's hard to believe it's been a full 30 days since the fire. All the TV vans and fire engines have been replaced by, landscaping trucks, cranes, tractors, and a lot of hard work. As far as we've heard, there has been only one major landslide since the fire as a result of the rain (Coyote and East Mountain). Largely because burn victims are doing the right thing and preparing their potentially landslide prone properties for the rain with the appropriate materials. I'm not sure what this particular method is called (pictured above), but it's obviously meant to keep the newly exposed hillside from sliding into the creek above Conejo.
It's actually pretty beautiful to see the contrast of the freshly laid grass, and the blackened earth below it. I will update soon with more images.
