Wood Smoke Stories

Hotel with wood-burning pizza oven

I live in Santa Barbara and a large hotel, the Santa Barbara Inn, has a wood burning pizza oven and I have been complaining for a year to no avail. The manager tries to buy me off with a free meal.

Otherwise, I have to keep my windows shut the entire day. A county air official agrees with me but says he can’t do anything unless there are a certain amount of complaints. Problem being, no one knows where smoke is coming from because it’s not visible.
