Quick note: Last night as the Thomas Fire moved into Carpinteria we evacuated. We’re all fine. Follow me on Twitter (@jbc99) for more details if you’re interested.

Hope to be back on here soonish, but you’ll probably mostly be getting queue from me (at least until that runs out) for the next little bit until things settle down.

Thanks!

In which I go on (and on) about the botched-and-then-corrected evacuation orders issued in Carpinteria last night. If, you know, that’s the kind of thing you’re into.

Today has been a day of fire and ash. We’re still here, watching the wind and waiting to see if we’ll need to evacuate.

There are two arms of the Thomas Fire pushing toward Carpinteria. One arm is coming up the coast from where it tried to burn La Conchita in the wee hours this morning. It’s about 3 miles away, but the fire crews have kept it at bay all day. The other arm is coming through the backcountry north and west of Ojai. It has farther to go to reach us, but fewer firefighters and roads in its way.

You can follow me on Twitter (where I’m @jbc99) if you want to be spammed with the latest updates.

Nearest flames are 15 miles or so away. I feel bad for the people who lost their homes in Ventura last night; anxious for what the next few nights of Santa Anas might mean for us here in Carp. But were packed and ready to scoot if we need to.
