I’d also like to remind everyone to be grateful today.
I have more than one friend who has been evacuated from the raging fires burning in the southern part of the state. So far, no one has lost their home, but it’s a minute by minute thing. We’ve had years of drought and weeks and weeks of wind. About half a million acres have burned. The hot-shot crews have been working their asses off, and our state isn’t the only one affected. Fortunately, so far, no one has been seriously injured.
So if you get to sleep in your own bed tonight without fear that everything you own is at risk, be grateful.
