Sometimes when you walk into a house you just know that it is the "one"…
As of this past storm, the reports are saying that Lake Cachuma, the water source for most of Santa Barbara is at 78% and I for one am holding space for it to spill over this year with a few more storms before the Summer. I read up about the name Cachuma and found the following “the name “Cachuma” comes from a Chumash village that the Spanish spelled “Aquitsumu”, from the Barbareno Chumash word aqitsu’m, meaning “sign”.
My son and I took a visit to Lake Cachuma to see if we could notice a difference from when we took a boat tour there last November and we couldn’t believe how much higher the water level is now! Although we were touched with a very warm weekend two weeks ago, this past week and weekend were rainy and the lake level rose even more and I am holding the space for it to reach 80% this Spring!
The past few months the many shades of green have been mesmerizing in the hills and in the back country. A group of friends did the Davy Brown 9 mile circuit a few weekends ago and we crossed various streams so many times. A school group went to scout out the location of the upcoming family camp-out and we had to wade across the river to get to the camp spots! The wildflowers have been a sight to behold and if you haven’t taken a hike out in the back country, the time to go explore is right now! I love to explore our community.
Also, below I wanted to share with you the Market Report for Santa Barbara County through February 2019, enjoy!
