So, the giant fire has been raining ash upon our repentant souls.
Turns out the fire was started by some homeless guy. They set his bail
at 10,000,000. I think it is interesting that there are only a couple
things that can get you that high of a bail: murdering scores of
people and starting a forest fire.
We were going to go on a hike today, but Foresthill has about twice as
much ash as Auburn, so visibility is about ten feet. We don't want
black lung, so we are staying in Auburn.
The work seems to be dying here in Auburn. Our numbers have been going down.
Elder Vielstich and I get along amazingly. We know each other's
favorite obscure bands. I am having deep conversations about religious
and political philosophy. It is nice.
