Y'know how some disasters aren't as important to you because they don't directly affect you? That's how I've been feeling about the fires all over the valley. Not that I'm not worried about them, but I didn't think I personally had anything to fear from them.
Now I do. The mountain closest to my home, the one I can see from the window, the one we would tell stories about in elementary school, has caught fire. If it's another idiot with fireworks or something, I'm going to vote they get banned this year. It's freaking me out a little bit. I've got all the emergency stuff I'll need for my books just in case. ;)
Hoping the fires are put out quickly.
Fare thee well, friend!
