This was a nice, white house. All over, but now all full of mud.

It just keeps getting worse and worse.

Here's Montecito from the air.

I went there in 2000 and had a great time, like Long Island West, lots of genteel mansions. So many ruined now.

Other places were hit, too. Here's what's left of someone's car in Burbank.

This looked like a nice car, once upon a time.

Forget about Highway 101 for a while.

Look closely and you can see two cars; one's a Hummer and the other's a Honda.

Can't tell which is which.

    • Is this Dypsis Lanceolata?
      By sbpalms
      I've been by this palm several times, it is a bit northeast of where I live. I don't have any photos of it, so this is a really bad, blurry picture from google maps a few years ago.

      I know we have a lot of Palm Talkers up there, and we're praying for you down here.
      Yeah, we have that fire in Anaheim, but so far No-Cal has been so much worse.

    • North Bay Wildfires
      By Silas_Sancona
      After hearing of family members being evacuated in a seperate fire incident northeast of Sacramento, I tuned into the ABC affiliate out of San Francisco to hear of an especially massive and ongoing situation in the Napa/ Santa Rosa area. As of 1:30pm, apparently 1500 structures, and several thousand acres have burned since starting sometime last night. Believe 20k are under evacuation atm in the area as well. 
       
    • Palms around Santa Barbara, California
      By sbpalms
      Santa Barbara has a very mild zone 10a climate. Here are some photos of palms that can be seen around my area.

      Roystonea regia (not my photo)

      What I believe to be Roystonea oleracea. These are located near the beach at UCSB.

      This is a species of Pritchardia. I originally posted this photo in this topic: http://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/51887-palms-at-ucsb/#comment-788706.
