I'm safe from the fire

#1 Post by Bob Juch » Thu Jun 11, 2020 1:07 pm

A fire has been burning in the Catalina Mountains north of Tucson for four days. It's in too rugged an area to do anything other than drop water on it. They're using very large jet aircraft as well as helicopters for that. There's a large area of homes that are threatened and about an hour ago they ordered an evacuation for the homes in the northern part. I'm in Oro Valley, to the northwest, and in no danger.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he'll never be able to drive in New Jersey.
