I had a bad feeling about this fire season when we had our first wildfire back in March, but this is just literally terrifying. Not just the one in Colorado getting all the press at the moment, but ALL OVER the West. Please, if you are a praying person, take a moment and pray for rain, for less wind and heat, for the protection of those brave souls out there on the front lines, for all the displaced people, everywhere, and for the MANY Good Samaritans who have shown up at these sites, restoring my faith in the overall goodness of our species. Amen.
(Sorry to digress from the site theme, but this IS now a blog, and this is overwhelming me right now.)
