But *damn* I wish there was!
It's hot and dry here. No real news. I got up this morning and it was 66 degrees at 5am, so we knew we were in for a hot day. If we were lucky, some rainclouds might come in the afternoon, but they didn't. Instead, there's just smoke in the air.
Today's fire is just to the north and east of us. I have a few friends that live in Black Forest, a handful of tutor students. The live feed shows several large homes burning. I feel a bit morbid as I scrutinize to see if they are any of the houses I know.
Of course, after last summer, everyone's got the heebie jeebies whenever there's a fire. But at least we know not to take them lightly. It's that time of year.
Anyway, we'll take prayers, rain dances, hallucinogenic drugs that bring about alternate realities - I, for one, am not picky.
Update: Chaco and I took the camera out and caught some of the aircraft going after the fire. They look so tiny in comparison!
The beginning shows smoke from the fire near the Royal Gorge to our south.
