I don't know if I can do this again this fire season. So much of Colorado is burning and I have friends who are under mandatory evacuation. The knowledge that places that I love are burning is physically hard for me to handle.

Is it strange that the Idaho fire happened while I was in Colorado and, now that I'm back in Idaho, Colorado is burning?

This could be a long fire season if Colorado is burning so early and Idaho is set up to be kindling by the end of summer. Dad (the local Fire Chief) and the others in areas around us have set up their teams to be certified to help out the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) fight fires on Federal land (around here, that's A LOT of land).

Now it's just a waiting game. Where will nature be responsible for the flames? Where will humans? How many people will be in jeopardy? How many homes lost? How much smoke will taint our air?

*sigh* It makes me physically exhausted to follow the news. So many tears. So much pain.

I made fic tonight out of despair. I didn't write anything when Colorado burned last year but I'm so tired of crying that I decided I needed to write something. My inner Darcy cried out for justice because she hung out in New Mexico so might very well have known what it was like to live through something like this.
