Up in the Sierra Nevada … winds gusts of up to 90 miles an hour have hit the region from Lake Tahoe to Mammoth Lakes.


A wind-driven brush fire that started late Monday afternoon near Highway 154 in Santa Barbara County.

It  moved quickly downhill towards the Cathedral oaks area … , prompting mandatory evacuations and threatening homes.

The Cave fire started just after 4 p.m. near East Camino Cielo and Painted Cave Road.

Evacuation order is issued for the area between Highway 154 … below East Camino Cielo and Foothill road.

Officials warned that SCE may turn off power to the area west of Goleta between and parts of Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria.

By 8 a.m. … it had grown to at least 41 hundred acres, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

Again … no fires burning … no evacuation orders …. no fires anywhere close to Malibu.


Caltrans gave notice yesterday they would have intermittent lane closures for striping work on PCH at the Escondido Beach project … this mroning from 3AM to noon.

No one there.

This is at the former narrow lane area . which has been fixed … all except for the restriping.

Looks like the 30 mile per hour speed trap will be with us at least another week … given the rain and the four-day holiday coming. Caltrans crews were supposed to be out early this morning on P C H … at that hated 30 mile per hour zone.

It was supposed to have been yanked out … and road lines striped … this morning.

Dozens of speeding tickets were apparently handed out in the 2 year long construction zone … which was widely ignored … forcing motorists to either speed or risk getting rear-ended.

And here’s a scary story from Santa Monica.

An unusual lightning strike during last week’s rainstorm hit a natural gas pipe.

It fused the gas delivery pipe to a water pipe.

And that caused water to flow into the gas pipe … displacing the methane.
