7. I just saw an article in the Indy online that is hair raising: a 10 foot wall of mud for an hour...

...in Montecito.

We are in a voluntary evac zone for flooding and our little valley is scorched all over. Most of the houses were saved from the fire, but it was a really close thing. I was quite nervous the other night as I could not get adequate information for Ventura -- everything just points back to Santa Barbara, which is, excuse me, nearly 40 miles away. I think I finally got the right website and FB, but honestly the notification system here sucks.

My husband did not want to leave, convinced that we are safe. So I boxed up a few things to grab in a hurry, and waited it out. The rain has not hit us nearly as hard as it hit Montecito and Carpinteria, and we have good drainage on our street -- but honest to gods, when I walk out my front door I am staring straight up a completely denuded hill with someone's ginormous house right on top and its ginormous deck cantilevered out into space.

You know what I'm sayin'?
