Summer Flames

The city’s on fire once again, although thankfully the flames aren’t anywhere near our house. You could choke on the smoke in the air and the sun seems to have turned orange, but that’s nothing. During the last major fire six years ago, we had ashes and pieces of charred pine trees falling on our yard, but fortunately the fire never got anywhere near us, and this time it’s on the other side of the lake. We’ve been lucky, knock on wood. But we’re all hoping they get this thing under control soon.

On a happier note, we’re getting new windows installed in our house this week. Our current windows have busted seals, rotting frames and in some cases so much condensation that you can’t even see out of them, so the new ones are very welcome. Now so long as the house doesn’t burn down, we’re good to go.
