The Ponderosa fire is not the only fire in our area. Approximately 17 fires, are burning in our area. Yesterday I had such a headache and felt nauseated from the smell of smoke. I do hesitate to complain too much - thinking of the people who have lost homes and of course the brave fire-fighters who have to work in all of that.
My son is attending a fire-technology program in college. I don't know if I want him to do it. But I keep my mouth shut. It's actually hard to get into - so even if he completes it, the odds of him actually getting a job is slim. He had told me he was going to change his major but classes start today and he said, he was going to give it one more semester.
They have these smoke-jumpers, that really amaze me. What bravery! Yeah, if my son was applying for a job like that, Mom would have to speak up. (not that he would listen)
