RE: Smoke/observatory


It's a dramatic one for sure. The TV news was very fond of that picture
last night, we saw a lot of it. Along with an endless stream of
speculation about which way the wind was blowing, what the fire dept
might do, what might happen if, and so on. You wish if they didn't have
anything to say they'd shut up. Local station though so I guess it might
have provided some comfort to the folks living in the area, if my house
had been close I'd have been glued to the news. If I'd been real close
I'd be packing up the pets.

Here's a picture of the observatory and the fire that I just plucked off
the front page of the NYTimes. Great picture, methinks.
