Just thought you'd all want to know how hot it is around here this week. I know weather talk is fascinating. It feels good to me, especially when it is dry. When I'm cold my whole being sort of tightens up and there is a feeling of tension, even when I am not actually tense. But heat, although it can be tiring, makes me feel kind of pleasantly limp and relaxed. When I look at it like that, I get the feeling that hot, hot, heat is the lazy person's weather. But I'm generalizing :-)
Anyway, on Tuesday morning there was even a fire in one of the businesses right across the street from the Library. There is this little strip mall sort of thing and apparently Cute Baby Beauty caught fire sometime early in the morning. Oh, and I don't know what to say about that name...there are many businesses around here that seem to be clumsy translations from Mandarin or Cantonese. Okay, so apparently that one shop was pretty well destroyed, but the fabulous fire fighters kept it contained and no other business were harmed. Also, no injuries. Yay! And honestly...anything called Cute Baby Beauty is bound to burn down eventually it seems.
Here are some pictures, that I did not take, of the fire...and the people who show up at fires:
Alright! I hope you all have a hot weekend, in all the right ways :-)
