Hot, like a sunrise...

It was very warm here yesterday.  That 'Oh, jeez, the car seat is toasty.  Hang on, no, the car seat is BURNING' kind of warm that one is glad only happens occasionally.

Here on the outskirts of crackle country (I'm sure y'all local recall Ash Wednesday, which had an anniversary recently.  I do.), we always have one eye on the Country Fire Service app on the ipads when there's a honkingly hot north wind.  Can't discount the possibility of something fiery and terrible happening.  My heart goes out to everyone affected by the thousands of fires experienced here in the driest state in the driest country every year.

Which is why I apologise in advance for this amusing and also titillating image my lovely CP Rach had on facebook recently.  Call it a silver lining. 

May all your gutters be free of leaf litter, your fire pumps working swimmingly and your firemen off-the-shizang built.

On the island sanctuary of Haven, surrounded by other anomalies with secret abilities, she fights to recover. But only one man calms the dark storm inside and makes her believe she can be whole again…Dr. Gage Walker.

Scientist Gage Walker has spent a decade helping anomalies. But every day, he’s haunted by his previous job for the CIA—where he crossed far too many boundaries and hurt so many anomalies.
