On fire... again...

The great thing about having a network of LMI's is that you can help each other. There is a huge fire on the North East side of town. A friend and group member is getting his stuff together for the evac phone call. His in-laws already have been evacuated, he is only a few miles away from the same spot.

We can't help him evac, they won't let anyone in the area. We can help with logistics, lodging, food, etc. Being displaced sucks, with 3  young children it's worse than sucks.

Hopefully they drop a fire ban. It doesn't help with idiots, but it's a start. No smoking outside your vehicle, no fire, nothing. But just like last year, who wants to warm up by a fire when it's 97 degrees out?


  1. My house in the city burned when I was a child. A forest fire would terrify me. I always feel for people in these huge fires.

    1. I can't even imagine what that would be like, especially as a child. Fire is our #1 worry in the foothills.
