So, there's this fire? I don't know if you guys have heard about it, but apparently it's kind of a big deal. From where we are in Silver Lake it looks like this:
And then during the day it looks like this:
This Mad Max looking picture is pretty close to what we were looking at while driving home from Newport Saturday morning. We, or course, didn't have our camera because, naturally, we never do. Which is actually one of the reasons we'll make such great parents. Our younger kids won't have to feel bad that there are so many more pictures of the older kids because there won't be pictures of ANY of the kids. That and we probably won't have any. Children, I mean.
Despite the fact that it's raining ashes on our stake center in La Crescenta, we're not in any real danger over here in hipstertown. First of all, there are train tracks between us and the fire, and you know those uppity flames won't be coming over to the "wrong side" any time soon. That and we have this handy reservoir by our house so, even if it jumps the tracks and the 5, the fire will probably be quenched before it singes our little shanty. If, by some twist of fate, it does come our way, we'll just find a Costco. Their food storage situation is pretty impressive. Also, air conditioning. Bonus! (Hiding out in Costco is also our Plan A for the Zombie Apocalypse. Don't steal our idea!)
But the best part about this fire is what we saw on one of our favorite Blogs today: A headline reading "THIS IS WHY GOD IS TRYING TO BURN L.A. DOWN" followed by the trailer for Season 6 of The Hills.
In conclusion, I think we all know what needs to be done to appease an angry God. Kill Spencer Pratt.
