A grave, probably.

Af...ter?

Florida weather has been vacationing in Boston for about 2 months now. I've already been caught in two street floods up to my ankles because our 19th century storm drains aren't designed to take a monsoon's worth of rain in 20-minute bursts every afternoon.

I'm into Trump's plan to water the entire state of California for the 8 months we don't get rain.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Is that from the Bolt Creek fire? Down here in So Cal I was reading an article today that said the fires we've had this past year have wiped out 20 years of progress made in reducing emissions.

We've been lucky this year and last, no smoke issues in the bay area, but it was looking to be an annual thing. We still got fires, but we just got lucky with the winds.

According to the news, it's a combo of Loch Katrine, Bolt Creek, and Suiattle. We're fucked.

Wow, I wasn't aware that there were 3 fires impacting Washington state. That's pretty rough, hope we both get some rain soon to help the firefighters.
