Tinder Box

The fire burning between Sedona and Flagstaff has the potential to get very ugly, very fast, it seems. Given the fire danger all across the Southwest, thanks to all sorts of things (invasive plant species, bad fire management and, of course, the drought), this should serve as warning.

If you live in an area where fires could strike, make evacuation plans. (This one I strongly recommend. My parents had to evacuate their house several years ago, and in the panic, my mom managed to grab the dogs just fine, but forgot her and my father's prescriptions. And leashes for the dogs. MAKE A LIST!) Make sure there's defensible space around your house. Do the smart thing. It could save your house and maybe even your life.

This has been our public service announcement for the day. Thanks for reading. We now return this blog to its regular, um, blogging.
