Two nights ago the United church in Wetaskiwin burned to the ground.
Last night the Evangelical Lutheran burned, but not to the ground.
That kind of stuff is really sad. Tonight I'm wondering if Wetaskiwin will be too, forgive me, too hot. So the fire starters may go looking for a little something in the country that might burn nicely.
I've only been out here a year but already I've had bad dreams about fires in this place. It's so far from anything remotely firefighting-ish that fires out here can be so damaging.
I'm not worried but I suppose I'm sleeping lighter than normal. And thinking about those whose spaces have been taken from them for this weekend.
