It's 1:09am on Thursday, December 2nd 2004, and here's the view from my bedroom window. The house next door is burning and we share a wooden fence. Pretty exciting stuff! Fortunately, I'm not too worried, I'm in a family of fire-fighters.
P.S. For those of you not in the U.S., most, if not all, residential housing (especially in the Suburban Western U.S.) is made of wood and quite flammable. My wife's still not used to this fact, and her family isn't impressed that our family fights fires. :)
