It's been overly hot in Idaho this week. Thankfully, we had some rain to help keep the temps down a little. But the rain brought thunder and lightning with it. The thunder was a nice distraction but the lightning was a bitch. Dad was out on two fire calls today. Well, he was out on one for most of the day and got home in time to turn around and go back out. I'm off today and thought that maybe I would stay up until he got home but no joy on that front. It's time for bed, no matter if I have to work tomorrow or not! So I guess that means the fire season has started.

RL people keep asking me if I've gone to Facebook/internet for info on the firefighters that lost their life in Arizona. I've actually been deliberating keeping away from that news. As much as my heart goes out to the families those Hot Shots left behind, I just can't. Not right now.

I started watching Eureka tonight and I really, really liked it! Got 7 episodes under my belt and will be back for more!

I also spent $30 on yarn today! Oops!

Honestly, I think NOT reading about disasters and lives lost is probably smarter, and much better for your own mental health. *hugs*

(Back in 2009, after the Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria, I spent waaaay too long reading things. Some of it was because I had family I hadn't heard from (everyone turned out to be okay, for the record), but others were- yeah, I didn't need to know. Neeeever doing that to myself again.)

I go back and forth between not reading about something disaster-y and reading too much. Sometimes I need to know the details and sometimes I don't! It's one of those fine lines.

*hugs* I hope your Dad stays safe.

I really like Eureka as well! It's a charming show, and showed that science fiction can be successful without being all space opera or completely brainless.

So far, the local fire guys are all doing well!

I've had a lot of fun watching it! So far, I've gotten through about ten episodes and I'm enjoying it so much! The storylines are interesting and I'm starting to enjoy the characters!

Keeping a good thought for you and your dad out there in Idaho. Meanwhile, back east, the damn rain won't stop. Sigh... I'd gladly send you some if I could.

Thank you for the good thoughts! They can use them!

You guys are drowning back East! And the Midwest is having trouble with tornadoes again, Colorado is burning and the West Coast is too hot! What's going on??? Ah, summer.
