Fires Attack

I spent most of yesterday glued to the news and I watched a large amount of a city burn down. And all I could do was hope that I would be safe from this natural disaster.

Luckily I was, at least for now. No one threw out a cigarette or caught something on fire near me so the wind didn't bring on another disaster. But not too long ago a couple of my neighbors lost their places, so the fear of a fire has hit home.

There is something about fire that scares me. I mean don't get me wrong I love bonfire parties or relaxing by a fireplace, but the threat of fire scares me. I guess it is because it can get so out of control so quickly and destroy so much.

Well, I hope everyone has these poor Oklahomans and Texans who no longer have homes and history has been erased. I know I do. Here are some pictures of the destruction.

Fires are a scary, terrible thing. I have been so blessed not to be affected by any. We had a huge apartment complex burn down during the ice storm that we had. The reason it burned down? They were using candles to keep warm.
