I wasn't blogging yet the first time my city was burning. I can't actually remember if I ever talked about it here.
I have to say that the fires today have brought back a lot of memories. I still can't stand the smell of wood burning. The constant watch over the news. Phone trees to see if everyone is ok.
I'm lucky this time, though, that the fires are nowhere near my home or my work (we did close a couple of branches today though) and that most of my friends live on the other side of town like me.
I do have a couple of friends that live in affected areas. Please keep them in your thoughts along with the thousands of others affected by the fires.
