The smoke from the Ventura fire

is here in Santa Barbara turning the sun red and the air smokey.

My throat is getting sore and the smoke is in my lungs.

1. Wildfires in December...

What global warming?

We have a family member in Ventura on level 3, just across the street from full evac. We lost our own home to wildfire in 1994. Living here in e. Washington I know and sympathize with what you are going through. O my god - best wishes to all!

2. I am in SB too and it is very eerie. A friend in Carpinteria says her car is covered in soot.

I passed through Ventura 24 hours ago and I did not see signs of the fire. It happened so fast.

10. I've got a friend in Ventura

who is really close to the fire, but he's confident it won't jump the 126. Fingers crossed for everyone out there.
