@Priceless...Some of us have kids,pets and a 91 year old Dad that just went to the ER... and are in the fire line...with a sick child at home--Maybe you want to rephrase that useless rant...or just look into a mirror and say that all to your self. Really- if you do not have something nice or supportive to say-go back to bed--an oh ..don't forget your meds.
Didn't your Mom ever teach you any manners.

@Ray...or someone who may know...What is the fire line at this point. We live on Foothill road near the SB Tennis club-we have white ash and and a blurry rust colored sky @ 2:43 AM-which way is the fire moving (in your opinion) Honestly-I am so glad you are here for us. KEYT and the Newspress (fishrwapper)-will be of no use as far as "reality" reporting goes. You need to have a desk there for these things-we need you! Thanks again Lizzy

Yep-it is just criminal-because this sort of news-a fire that could impact us all-should be "above the line" headlines in all media.With all the advances in technology-this is just sloppy sloppy production. Who produces? Directs? the news at KEYT.The Newspress (fish wrapper) was gone long ago. Can't we have some standards in reporting that do not make us laughable?

Can we hear from Ray Ford? We have all been through this-let's get a grip. We are on Foothill-and white ash is falling. We just moved up here this year-and the neighbors here are all dialed in. What we learned today? Ok. So...our driveway is a block long-we are remote-ish...it smells like BBQ-which would be great if it were just that. We have a friend who lives in Paradise and we have offered shelter-but we are perhaps in the "burn line". Have you ever heard the saying.."if you want to make God laugh-make plans.?" We just finished unpacking (almost) from the move-and now the word is-"pack up-just in case their is an evac" Do we laugh now?Cry? We were all hedaing downtown to see "Hangover III"-(we are a family of men-and a Mommy) and then I came out of the Paseo Nuevo bathroom on the second floor and saw the "plume"(we are so educated here that plume is a common word)-then I called my fiance'-"hey honey I just saw a rust colored plume from the north west quad---???" We begin research on phones-all the while my back has gone into spasm--I sit in front of the theatre--we have done that thing where the family scatters-we are all in different locations downtown. I had shopped for food-my son was working on a video project filming homeless folks downtown-my fiance and his son were clothes shopping...so what did we do? Not the movie-we came home and had a BBQ-ironic perhaps? cont-belowBut we skipped the movie to come home and "honker down". I went next door and my neighbor MIssy said, "ya know people always say-how nice it is when the weather gets warm here...and that's when we all start thinking...yeah -right-OK---and in my head is-***I just hope we don't smell smoke***"....well we smell smoke and see ash...and Santa Barbar media has gone rogue-WTF KEYT-who the F*** is running the show up there on the hill? Seriously. Mrs. Towbes needs to get that station in gear. It is suppose to be a NEWS agency-s place we can go to find out what is happening--right?

When you Google "Santa Barbara Memorial Day Fire"-who is number one in reporting....wait for it...sit down...The LA Times...who could honestly give a SH** about us....simply because we are 90 miles away. Fire happens fast and furious. I DEPEND on RAY FORD--as my best resource for "reality" News about fires here. Here is the "SB Fire GURU" absolute!We live on Foothill near the SB Tennis Club-and it is 1:22 AM-the sky is amber glowing and ash is falling-I have a headache-back spasm....and I pray that we do not have to evac. Kids are finishing school. We have an 8th grader graduating and a party....my 91 year old Dad lives downtown. I just hope the heaven sent Fire Department gets it under control...that the crazy sudden wind dies-the heat settles--maybe some rain? Why is it that when something begins to burn here-we get crazy wind? Anyhow-I am still in gratitude-yet scared of the local media....Thanks in advance to Ray Ford (who honestly needs to have a news desk ON AIR during ANY and ALL fires ....that's just my $00.02....Did my back go out as a reaction to the stress of fire? I mean it is a thought. We have been spring cleaning-and was scrubbing the kitchen floor (now doppled with ash)....and @loonpt-yeah why is that? Does fire attract wind? I feel like we in SB are playing a game of atmospheric "rock-paper-scissors" when we hit fire season. Thanks Indy-for at least being aware. The Indy needs a TV channel-in my humble view. Edhat?..eh...did ya'll get drunk and fill the network with Mojito news? And The SB Newspress(aka fish wrapper)will probably have a front page on a Vet 3 Legged race for us later today-ee gads! Ray Ford PLEASE come to our aid!!!! Thx Lizzy (sorry for the word burgers-half asleep and a bit scared)(continued below)
