Santa Barbara Gap Fire Afternoon July 2
9:15 am: Starbucks is packed. Many are commenting on the need for caffeine since we were all up last night watching the fire. The lights were on in most homes at 1:30 am when we went to check out the staging area.
1:00 pm: You know how annoying the marketing calls are when they call during dinner. It is really annoying when you are trying to keep your land line free for a reverse 911 call.
3:30 pm: The Staging area fire trucks are gone. They have been replaced by news media vans with satellite antenna. There are a couple giant pieces of heavy equipment that I can only imagine are too big to get anywhere useful.
