Santa Barbara Fire

We have had our share of fires in beautiful sunny Santa Barbara, that's for sure! While on my short but sweet vacation there my mom drove us around to see the different areas effected by this last fire and the other two.

It was amazing to see how close the fire came to some homes and burned their entire front and back yard but didn't touch their home. And then others were not so lucky.

Here are some pictures of the hillside.

That's awful for those families... I can just imagine the difficulty of rebuilding such areas. Glad your parents home was spared.

Wow! So sad. Alana and I will be in SB June 12th to 16th. Sorry to miss you. Glad you're having fun.
