How soon we forget: Santa Barbara, 1969

Posted by George J Janczyn on May 8, 2010

I was in high school and had moved to San Diego from Santa Barbara a few years before 1969 when this happened. I learned to surf in SB and spent many long days at the beach and from afar it was hard to imagine the reality of the mess. But it really was a mess.

This Daily Kos article is a good recap of that event. Sadly, our Gulf Coast states are probably in for even worse.
