The evac folks at Earl Warren can undoubtedly use $ to purchase hay,
and help in feeding and otherwise caring for (I spent a week longing
and walking horses during the Painted Cave Fire evac) the evac horses,
the number of which will probably grow now that the evac zones have
been extended into the Goleta foothills. Earl Warren has 600 stalls .
. . and the barns are equiped with sprinkler systems. I have heard
nothing about IT being evacuated! -- it is protected on the north
(direction of the fire) side by the lushly green Municipal Golf course,
and the firefighters are using it as their base camp. Best on-line
coverage that I've found during these last few fires is the Santa
Barbara Independent:
