Jul 12, 2006 - 02:38 PMThis is the panorama from the north side of our roof, looking up toward the wildfire currently threatening the Morongo Valley community, about 20 miles from here. Many of our coworkers, relatives and friends live near areas that are in harm's way, so we can't help worrying. That's why I climbed the ladder about ten minutes ago, to capture a wider view.
It's 111°F (44°C) today, so my hands got burned on the metal roof hatch. I was going to whine about it, but then I remembered the courageous firefighters who are braving a flame-filled hell, in their efforts to protect us. [Click photo to enlarge.]
