Santa Barbara - On Fire!!!

I was just on FOX NEWS reading their front page post.... Fires in SB!!! I've been home for the 4th but will be flying back to SB early Tuesday morning. I called Crystal and she said the airport is still up and running:) I had such a wonderful time being here in KC, I'll miss you all so much. God willing, I'll see you all again in August:)

Firefighters on Sunday were given a welcome boost by cooler, damper weather as they battled a vast blaze ravaging Santa Barbara County, but were anxiously watching forecasts that call for a quick return to high, dry temperatures.

"We've got a window here with the humid weather that's really helping us," said Dixie Dies, spokeswoman for the state Incident Management Team. "But we know we're in this for the long haul."

Moist air currents from the ocean cooled temperatures to the high 70s Sunday, helping fire crews keep the four-day-old blaze from spreading. It was less than a third contained Sunday afternoon.

Temperatures are forecast to start climbing Monday, reaching the 90s by Thursday, and the "monsoonal sweeps" -- winds that pick up moisture from the ocean -- are expected to dissipate and the air to dry out,
