What a Difference 24 Hours Makes....

OMG what a crazy 24 hours for all the folks in Montecito to Carp. I was more in fear for La Conchita. I knew the creeks below the fire zone would be tested, but OMG who would have thought this would have happened.

Today the weather will help us with the clean-up. The low that created all the flash flooding is over Arizona now. We are left with sunny skies and a massive clean-up. I had to go to Coast Village Road yesterday and unclog the drains at Starbucks. The parking lot is a staging areas for bringing people in from homes where they were abandoned. Amazing to see the support teams in place.   http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?x=194&y=119&site=lox&zmx=&zmy=&map_x=194&map_y=119#.WlYs5ySIbxw  

Ok weather wise:

As I mentioned yesterday, as soon as the winds switched from the north the rain would be over. Last evening that happened. Today and for the next 4 days, we will be dry and warm. Under high pressure, sunny and temps will climb into the 70s by the weekend .

Next week a gulf of Alaska storm tries to sneak in, but should stay north because it will be blocked by high pressure. Wednesday of next week we might see changes back to winter weather. We should however have a week to get cleaned up and back to normal. Amazing to think that we were worried about the ash 2 weeks age, and now it is about all the mud.

To any of my good friend in Montecito. I am so sorry for you guys. Anything I can do to help, I will drop everything I am doing and bring my guys there to help with the cleanup. You all know my cell phone. Please call me. I will make Action to help you...
