Nor do we get tornados like the ones that devastate the Midwest. We could have an earthquake, someday, and that will most likely be a problem at my house, if it ever occurs. What we do have, too often are hillside fires just like the one that is burning right now, just 1/4 mile up the hill from my house. The BSU and I saw it at about 6:15 this morning when we left out for the dentist's office, it was much bigger and further up the hill upon our return about 9:30.
There's lots of smoke and you can see the flames from the house and there is a fierce wind blowing today but hopefully the guys that get paid to tackle blazes like this will get it under control shortly. There shouldn't be any concern for my house as the fire is burning up the hill right now but its disturbing to see just the same.
