The heat is making people crazy

Just witness the lunacy around the corner from the house –


He must’ve been doing 32/33 mph. I’m telling you, it’s the heat. No self respecting, Subaru driving, tree-hugger would be caught exceeding the posted limit. Probably had the kids in the car too! Just crazy I tell ya.

On a serious note – You, firefighter person, you are a stud/stud-ette. It’s over a hundred degrees out, you’ve got 40 pounds worth of gear on, and you’re fighting fires in Central Washington? You’ve probably spent the entire Summer crisscrossing the Western states, putting out the hot spots. My hat’s off to you for doing what you do, and doing it well;

    I’m telling you. The heat messes with your head. There’s no predicting what you might do.

  2. Nice job (and funny–I drive a Subaru). As a firefighter at a small fire district, I’m ready to respond, but luckily, we only get small fires. The Forest Service, Oregon Department of Forestry and private contractors–they get to really get addled by the heat, and that’s okay by me! I need to hydrate just thinking about it.
