Received a text from my best friend stating, "The whole state of Colorado is on fire." He's visiting his father, who lives about 55 miles away, and can see flames from the front porch!

I wanted to reply, "Why the fuck are you visiting your dad today, when you live an hour to the south where it's (still) safe?"

I will be happier when I hear my friend is ensconced in his own home, where he belongs.
