Those aerial photos we saw yesterday in the paper tell the story don’t they. Firefighters did a remarkable job saving people’s properties. Kudos to them.
Brickbats to whoever, whether negligently or purposefully, set this fire raging.
This report on the fire raging near Halifax doesn’t ask the question everyone no doubt has on their minds. How did it start? Lightning? Arson? Some idiot burning trash in a high wind? A couch burning gone awry?
We can expect they might not know as yet but at least someone could ask the question. Some local might have a clue.
UPDATE: This later report says a bit more. They know where it started and describe it as a “raging brush fire”
FURTHER UPDATE: Another report-[have they read us?] now they are talking about where it started!!!
They haven’t twigged yet, the press, that when they DON”T mention something we know that is of interest!
Then there is this –
Why couldn’t she bring out her cats? Crazy! She is there anyway to get her insulin- what idiocy. You know if it was us we would have taken our cats anyway- and our photo album- and said “Okay -confiscate them, arrrest us, put us in jail!” Can you imagine the story? Come on folks. Stand up for yourselves!!!!! Don’t let them herd you like cattle. This kind of submission to insane authority worries us.
Anyone who thinks we are very far from a police state should think again. It is one thing to advise people of danger. It is another to restrict them and arrest them.
