Santa Cruz fire evacuations

Several hundred people living in the Santa Cruz Mountains have been forced to evacuate their homes as over 3,000 acres of dry woodland burned overnight. It’s good see people are leaving their homes with the things that are important to them.

All the smoke in the air made riding my bike this morning a little tough. I went slow to keep myself from breathing hard.

    That is Sabine. She had a tough time figuring out which bike to take. I know I would. I am hoping for the best for all of them

    Do you know these people? I think I've seen the guy around town in Santa Cruz but I don't know him.
