First up, the weather...Doc Searls has pictures here:

The sun is peeking through today but we still have tremendous haze in the sky from the big fire to the south of Santa Barbara. Ash is still falling over the city.

He also has coverage and commentary from a local's perspective and tons of links for everyone -- needing info about the big wildfire called "The Day Fire."

Click the red title or here is the link:

(you can cut and paste it)

I know, I keep repeating myself...but many are not web savvy, so that is why!

This fire carries a "red flag" warning and additional info can be gotten here:

Ojai and Fillmore are near to Santa Barbara -- we should be seeing this front page, and we didn't yesterday. Two things Californians deal with are wildfires and earthquakes.

Luckily we don't have hurricanes and tornadoes...unless of course the climate change is going to bring those down the road.

Here is a link to The American Red Cross:

with tons of info, for the public.

And!

Smokey the Bear!

Remember him? He is the guardian of the forest, and this is a great site for kids to learn about fires and safety...
