Fires in December! That's out of line.

One of the fires started yesterday and is at 11,000 acres. My sister lives about three miles from that fire, where there have been people evacuated. Her husband has been disabled for about ten years because of a stroke. He is bedridden and completely disabled. He cannot even be moved by wheelchair anymore. If they are evacuated, it will be a nightmare for them. She is eighty years old.

Does seem a bit odd. Maybe Jerry Brown is the Devil. Have you thought about getting an ex-weightlifter -slash- action hero who could bloviate a bit?

We tried that. You should have heard how funny he sounded trying to say "bloviate."

The fire in LA is shitty. There have been around 150,000 people evacuated.

The fire that was threatening my sister is now just under 16,000 acres and ninety percent contained. Good news there.

But there's a much larger fire that's been burning for about a week, and is only fifteen percent contained.
It has burned 173,000 acres (270 sq. miles). It's about 120 miles south of us and is moving north. There's little chance of it reaching us, but it is very close to Santa Barbara. Our little valley here has smoke from the fire.



They had to evacuate hundreds of rare turtles because of the fire, including a 400 pound Galapagos tortoise. They have spent the last few days in the basement of the city hall here in town.

You should let the weather forecasters know. There is no rain predicted for at least the next two weeks. We have had a total of three tenths of an inch since July. High temperature for today is expected to be eighty-one degrees.

You got that right! Our average rainfall in December is just under four inches. So far, this month there has been none, and none projected through the twenty-second. Our temperatures this month have been around ten to fifteen degrees warmer in the day, and ten to fifteen degrees colder at night. Fucking weird.

The sun is trying to peek through the smoke.
Air quality readings are not good.

Five thousand residents of Santa Barbara ordered to evacuate.

Two hundred thousand acres burned. Now the fifth largest wildfire in California history.

This thing may just crawl up the coast and bite us on the ass.

Corvallis keeps looking better.

By last night, the fire had grown to 230,000 acres. It grew 50,000 acres in one day.

Student at U.Cal Santa Barbara on the news this a.m. said he was watching the fire grow in real time using satellites.

A family bought a new house in Santa Rosa and rented out their ventura House, Two months ago, their house in Santa Rosa burned down. A couple of days ago, their house in Ventura burned down.
The must have pissed off the fire gods.

Not as bad as the Japanese guy who was in Hiroshima on business when the bomb fell. He survived and went back home - to Nagasaki. Just in time for another bomb to fall. He survived again. Lucky bastard.

The column I found interesting was this one:

  • August 2013
  • July 2007
  • December 2017
  • September 1932
  • October 2007

  • July 2002
  • August 1987
  • August 1999
  • August 2014
  • July 2016

June = 2
July = 5
August = 7
September = 3
October = 2

Yeah. Fourteen of the twenty were in this century, with five of them in the last five years.
This is the only big one in fucking December!

There are a lot of celebrities who live in Montecito. And a lot of non-celebrities: I lived there for a short period. It's a beautiful damned place.

Cal Fire is saying that the fire has only grown five hundred acres so far today. This morning, they were showing ten percent contained, but have raised that back up to fifteen percent.

They certainly are making an effort:

Total Fire Personnel: 6,397
Total Fire Engines:      856
Total Fire Crews:        113
Total Helicopters:         27
Total Dozers:               67
Total Water Tenders:    48

A little trivia:

For 75 years, Santa Barbara held the record for the highest temperature ever measured on Earth. 133 degrees on June 17, 1859.
