18th June 2017

So far in the past two weeks, we’ve had two forest fires caused my humans around Cedar City, Utah, United States of America. One being about twenty minutes West near a place called “Old Iron Town.”. I have a friend living up there so that fire suddenly felt closer than another fire I’ve seen. The second fire started yesterday and in that short time, it had engulfed an estimated 957 acres of land as of last night. That one’s located at a place called Brian Head it being about ____ from Cedar City. Evacuations were issued later on that day for 750 people.  There has been a lot of dead trees up there over the years and this is the first fire that I’ve seen up there since moving here to Utah in 2001. Two forest fires that I know of in such a short period of time that it gives the feeling that this summer is going to be a hot one and a dangerous one.

Thankfully my place of residence is safe but it doesn’t mean my heart doesn’t go out for the people who’s homes are in danger. One house has burned down thus far and several are in danger. Let’s hope the fire died down some last night.

As for the editing software that I'm using; I'm slowly but surely getting the hang of it, thankfully.  See you all next week.
