I went to my post office box today, which is about a half mile from our house in Santa Barbara, and was greeted with the above sight as I got out of the car. You may have read about the Zaca fire burning in Santa Barbara County or seen it in the news. Well, there it was staring me in the face, and it didn’t do a lot for my sense of well being. Although we are being told that it’s doubtful that the fire will actually make it to our neighborhood, the authorities have set up a command center and are developing evacuation plans.
The kids and grandkids just left after being here for 10 days, I’ve got all-day meetings for the next couple of days, and now I’ve got this fire to worry about. All these distractions have made blogging and answering comments difficult. I’ll try my best to stay ahead of it and will get all the comments (of which there are a zillion) that have stacked up dealt with and posted as soon as I can.
Thanks for bearing with me.
