    I'm from Oxnard, which is about 30 mins south of SB. I remember 2-3 yrs ago when we had those crazy fires. I was with the CA Air Guard at the moment, but was in Georgia when the fires started. On our way home, we could see the smoke clouds for miles(hundreds maybe) as we neared home. As we diverted to avoid all the smoke, we could see how high some of those flames reached. I wish I had a camera at the time.

    My (old) unit based out of Pt. Mugu/Pt Hueneme does firefighting. So if you see any C-130s dropping fire repellent, those are my boys most likely.

    Anyways, hope you and your family are safe out there.

    Was it some idiot white guy trying to start a camp fire cause this whole hell fire? I saw on the news they have pictures of a guy running tail from the fire when it first started.
    At least a fire can be stop. You can not stop a tornado or a flood. I rather have the Santa Barbara fire than that one time when Texas had the five waves of hurricanes or when New Orleans had that huge flood. Fuck that shit.
    Hope your house doesn't get burn down.

    I like Cali and all, but floods can be somewhat predicted as to the geographic area that they will encompass and there is a decent lead time for warnings and evacuation. Plus, I float easier on water than fire.

    back in '03-04 when I was stationed at Miramar in San Diego, fucking fires jumped across 8 lanes of I15 freeway onto the base. It's nucking futs what these fires can do.

    I was living in Bozeman, MT, in 1988 when they had that massive fire there. I went over in that area a couple of times, and there was a veil of smoke continuously for up to forty miles from the park entrance.

    I camped out one of the nights and was in a sleeping bag outside, but I decided to sleep in the car 'cause I got scared. They say bears are very dangerous during forest fires.

    It was scary in the car too, because the campground I was at was a very steep slope, and I had just parked my car facing down it. I put a few boulders under the front tires, but I still worried I would wake up careening down the hill. lol
     
  21. That must have been a horror show there in Santa Barbara.
