world was on fire no one could save me but you

Hey! We have a lot to talk about this week so let's get going. I mentioned in my last blog that I was thinking of going to Denver. Well I did go to Denver, and I took pictures. Not gonna get to that until tomorrow though. There are time-sensitive issues that need to be discussed.

In the interest of full disclosure, my general attitude right now is "nope." Whatever that means.

So what do people do when they're not watching the Olympics? Apparently 86% of America watched the games. I watched a lot of lympics myself. Really enjoyed them. Come to think of it I think I've enjoyed the games every time ever since LA in '84. Actually I don't remember watching much if any of the last summer games in Athens. But that was a turbulent time. Athens: nope.

I bet you think you're pretty cool huh Beijing? Hosting the Olympics and all. Not every city gets to do that. Oh oh oh, what's this?


Boom.

So the Wasatch Front was on fire today. Could still be on fire for all I know. I noticed billows of smoke on my lunch (nap) break and figured the fire was just down the street. Turns out it was a million miles away, just huge. The whole valley is literally covered with ash. We're all going to need to get up early tomorrow to shovel our driveways. Because of all the ash. After work I went to pick up a sandwich and then cruised around taking pictures of the apocalypse.








Maybe I should name this post "Apocalympics." Eh.
