Fascinating in a Scary Sort of Way

I have to admit that when I am outside, I can't stop looking up at the fire.  It grew so quickly on Monday, it was frightening.  The winds have been crazy, which makes this a very dangerous fired.  Here are some of the photos I took yesterday.








As frightening as that looks, our home is not really in danger and I don't expect it will be.  However, I know a lot of people who's property is being threatened.  Yesterday at work I witnessed nurses and surgeons alike, doing their jobs with compassion, all the while wondering if their own property was being burned.  It takes a real professional to be able to set aside their personal concerns while doing their job.  I was impressed.
