There is currently a massive fire in Santa Barbara. Just before midnight last night, the sheriff's department came through our neighborhood and told us the wind had shifted and we needed to get ready to leave. So far, we've been able to stay in our home, but we're in an evacuation warning area--and quite frankly it's hard to breathe. We're packed up and ready to go if needed. Please pray for the people in Santa Barbara, many homes have been lost and several firefighters injured.
