|Field fire south of town by my MIL's|
A few days later, a friend of mine and her husband and kids lost their home to a fire. Something to do with a cigarette butt. My friend is taking full responsibility for the fire. I guess it was her cigarette. :/ We donated some money to them because they have a daughter about a month older than Ben and she lost everything. Their older daughter's stuff was never touched by the fire or ruined by the smoke, but the baby has nothing. I was glad we could help.

Then, last night two tornadoes touched down in a town about 100 miles from here. I have friends and family that live in that town and I was worried about them. Thankfully there wasn't a lot of damage to the town...not a lot of damage like I've seen on the news regarding other tornadoes, anyway.
Also, yesterday there was a huge fire in Yuma County, Colorado, which isn't too far from where I live and houses were destroyed and firefighters were injured. It's all so sad.

Even though most of this stuff doesn't effect me directly, it's still a lot to handle and a person can only handle so much tragedy. :/
