La Cumbre/State, during Thomas Fire, gas stations working, and street lights working, no Edison caused emergency of turning off power. An emergency is an absence of choice (offered by Edison and PG&E); just look at the video and think about what would happen to traffic trying to evacuate, and people with little gasoline unable to fill their tank to evacuate (because gas stations need power to work pumps). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=solekt4Pt9Q

The 101 is open according to the CHP. There is concern that the eucalyptus trees north of Calle Real could catch on fire. Roger, is there anyway you can inform us readers on Edhat when the fire is totally out? It’s especially important for persons living north of the 101. Thanks

Party Mix, a dry food treat, is really good. I get it out of the cupboard very quietly. They wake up out of a dead sleep for it. It is their favorite. I give each category about 8 pieces. They are content and happy.

Wonderful idea to feed him a lot. That way your kitty will not be tempted. I started feeding extra to one of my males and it kept him happy and not irradiated with his dad. You are in my prayers. Have a blessed day. Thank you for your reports, very helpful.

Someone else may be able to report the news, but, they can not tell the stories like you do. Or be funny with their posts. I for one will stick with you! You add to my life even though we have never met, yet.

MISS: When it comes to east vs. west, westerlybreezes/ winds in Santa Barbara are the most prevalent. It's pretty unusual when the winds blow easterly (from the east to the west).
