I live in Santa Barbara and for now, we're safe from the Thomas fire, but the voluntary evacuation area is only 3 miles away. I have so many colleagues that live in Ventura, where the Thomas fire began, and Ojai; I hope their homes are still standing and they are all safe.

My thoughts go out to those who are fighting the fires; their job is a horrible one filled with exhaustion and heat. I am also thinking of the tens of thousands who have been evacuated and/or lost their homes. In our house we have a bag packed and have discussed what we'll take if we're given enough notice.
School has been cancelled for yesterday and today (smart move) so I think I'll watch season 2 of The Crown today on Netflix.
Sunday, December 10 update--we evacuated tonight and are staying at a hotel. We'll take it day by day. School/work has been cancelled for the week so I am on Winter Break!
Stay safe out there!
