The Overberg firefighters are awesome. Totally awesome. I just had to say that.
So, it’s been an interesting week. A lightning strike in the mountains set off a wildfire and we got the news that it was headed towards my parents’ and uncle’s homes on Thursday. My folks headed that way, I babysat the dog, and we waited. On Friday the firefighters arrived and started backburning in our area, and by early Saturday morning – I mean not-time-to-go-sleep-yet early – they were off evacuation alert. The fire got to the fence of the house on the other side of my uncle’s – it was that close.
In the meantime, there was this suddenly-trivial thing in the background. Called exams. Wrote statistics this morning, which actually went ok, all things considered. It’s not like I could focus that well on anything until I got the news on Saturday evening.
All’s well that ends well. On to Evolution!
