On our Tuesday evening flight we got these reassuring pics of the quick work on our debris catch basins. Everyone in Montecito can rest at least a tiny bit easier knowing this work is going on. The one of San Ysidro Creek at the SY Ranch (green on left edge) shows how much debris they've removed there already. The other one at upper Cold Spring Creek shows the depth of the boulder field they're digging away at there.

Thank you. Good to know they are cleared enough to hopefully make things better when we get more rain. Even a little bit can bring runoff from the burn areas.

These photos are so helpful for getting the context of places and the extent of damage. John put some great Freeway photos on SBitz.net that clarify issues too. It's stunning to see the extent of the problem and the work that is so focused to clear them. Thank goodness for the 101 though, because if the water hadn't run along the freeway, Lots more houses and people would have been affected i

Those are pretty astounding to look at, even though it’s still hard to wrap my head around the size and scale. Thanks, as always, John, for this new perspective.
