This is a testament to the raw power of wild fires. I send my sympathies to the people affected by these fires in Santa Barbara. I have experienced this twice, evacuated the second time but fortunately never lost anything. It is that time of year for us Californians when the weather is just right for these to happen. The photos are amazing and frightening! I got them from weather.com and these are the ones that I felt had some impact.

For any of our members here that are affected by this, my thoughts and prayers are with you! Don't be a hero, just get out!! Material things can be replaced....YOU can't!!
