Santa Barbara- burning yet again!

Last night around 6pm, a fire started in the hills behind Santa Barbara/Montecito. It is still burning and as of the time of this article, 80 structures had been burned. (And according to this article, over 100.) Fortunately my parents live on the other side of town, but we have lots of friends who have been evacuated-- I am hoping they (and their homes) are all safe.

Additionally, the entire 9 trails course is either burning or shut down for fear it will be in the path of the fire. It does not look good for the race either.

Not good. Prayers go out to all those affected by the fire. Hope your family stays safe and remains unaffected.
