Mobile Bumpers: Holy forest fires!
They are so bad they caused some major power lines to shut down, causing a widespread power outage 2 days in a row. We're talking about fires that are over 700 miles from us, so you can imagine how bad they must be to be causing trouble all the way down here. (They're actually part of the same "group" of fires, if you will call it that, that had kjgilhoo worried not long ago)
We lost power at about 5PM yesterday. Lucky for us, our picnic was already packed and ready to go, and then power was restored by the time we got back home. Thank goodness for that because with that kind of heat, I don't think the food in the refrigerator/freezer would have lasted very long.
