This was supposed to be a happy little blog posting about Broken Valley Roadshow playing Out to Lunch in Caras Park, but I became distracted by another drama. In spite of the wet spring and late snow, things are getting dry, and fire season has arrived. I was on the phone when I first heard the helicopter. I thought Medivac was landing in the parking lot here at Creekside Apartments, but the sound circled the complex and came down the river past my window. One look told me there was a fire close at hand. The chopper quit flying at dark, but smoke was still billowing over Mt. Sentinel. What will the story be tomorrow?
