Thinking about the Fires



While we look out the window and worry about erratic icicles, Southern California is on fire. Two years ago Dinah and I had to evacuate horses during the fires. A friend called this morning and said it was unlike anything he'd ever seen, so smokey that you have to drive with headlights on in the day. We're keeping KNX radio on to follow it- that's the local news station. What the news isn't reporting is that formerly the National Guard would be helping put these fires out, but guess what-- they're mostly in Iraq.

Ironic post, in more ways than one.

News about fires reminds me how unimportant it is for me to acquire things.

Such drastic differences in weather and climate. Have just learned how very severe the drought and water shortage are in our own state.
