Fire!

So, there’s a fire across the street…

Our billionaire neighbor is taking down some of his less-than-healthy trees and burning them in a huge pile. He owns hundreds of acres and this field just happens to be the only one directly adjacent to a bunch of (poor people’s) houses and so of course it’s the one that he starts a huge fire in. (It’s also the one he keeps his compost piles in). My dining room smells a bit like smoke and I’m annoyed. He could have had his people burn these trees far, far away from any houses, and he didn’t.

The good news is that our view is slightly better, though all the trees right in front of our porch are unfortunately still standing.
