1. There were already four wildfires burning in the western part of the state when two got started Tuesday in the eastern part of the state. One of the burned over 100,000 acres in 24 hours and the other burned almost 20,000 and about 60 houses. \
I can't believe the sale of fireworks is even allowed when it is this dry. Anyone who starts a fire with one should be burned at the stake. None of the above fires were caused by fireworks, but it is almost the fourth of July and all kinds of idiots think they need to set of their own fireworks.
I liked my Dad's idea when we were growing up of doing it over New Years instead.
Don't get me wrong I don't hate fireworks, but I do hate fires.
2. I have a new fear about the marathon. I am now worried about more fires starting and it having to be canceled due to either fire or smoky conditions.
I would be so bummed! 10 days to go! No fireworks!
3. My daughter insists on wearing long sleeves and jeans. Even when it is 100 degrees outside. She thinks short sleeves are silly. Whatever, she will either figure it out or she won't!
