Fiddling while Reno burns...
I am quite taken with the state of Nevada, especially points north of Las Vegas. I found Reno to be homey and charming, and the area around it to be filled with the quiet beauty of the high desert.
My headline isn't meant to impugn anyone's firefighting efforts, only my helpless inability to help them put out the flames. The folks out there battling these blazes are up against terrain that's rough and tinder-dry year round, with winds kicking up to speeds of 30 miles per hour and higher.
God, watch over these brave people and the residents they are working so hard to protect.
