3. That's so good.

I was in Florida one year of a big wildfire and you couldn't breathe outside for a week without smelling it. The day that cleared was righteous.

6. Fingers crossed for the firefighters!

And for everybody in fire country.

I know how utterly unnerving and helpless that feels. Even if the fire doesnít get near you. Absolutely helpless. You canít just levitate your house out of the danger zone. Or summon some magic shield to protect it.

You start thinking about how to feel resigned and accepting if you lose everything. You start imagining that and other worst-case scenarios. You start packing a box or large bag of ďMUST keepĒ stuff. You start mentally sorting what sentimental or precious objects youíll have room to take or that you better learn to live without. You start wondering how long to hold out. When to gas up the car. What food to grab. Should you go to the bank and get some cash to set aside - and how soon? Or should you try to put it out of your mind and not worry about it? And youíre a LOT more keenly aware of where your pets are, in case of need to grab them in a hurry. You go into survivalist mode. Itís freaky.

Iím lucky. No fire ever got too close. But I did put that box together - of photos Iíd never want to part with.
