This picture sucks. But I can see all of SB from my little perch here.
The fire has clearly branched into many children. There are three bright blazes over towards the San Roque area (possibly near the reservoir). Sadly, another large blaze is racing towards the top of the mountain near gibralter.
The wind is behaving erratically and shifts the direction of the fire and column of smoke.
The good news is that it is nowhere near as strong as it was yesterday (at least where I'm standing).. From what I can tell, Santa Barbara proper doesn't seen to be in any of the fires paths. But if the wind picks up again, all bets are off.
