Chris Hanson, & Being in the Middle of a National Disaster

Eureka! I have decided what/who I am going to be for Halloween: "Chris Hansen, Dateline NBC," the host of "To Catch a Predator"!!!

I can't wait to walk around with fake chatroom transcripts and confront my friends with hilariously awkward quotations I'll make up on the spot and allege they said. And he's got so many other silly mannerisms and trademark phrases ("the computer internets!!"), its going to be excellent!

In other news, I'm in a middle of a designated National Disaster Zone, allegedly the biggest evacuation in US history in fact. The other day you could see the flames from my street, only a few miles away (and it was only "30% contained!")

I can't see the fire through all the smoke, and haven't been able to find an updated map today, but I'm told it was up to 50% contained, and then dropped back down to 30% late yesterday, and is spreading to the south-east and north from where it was yesterday. Yesterday after work my car looked like it'd been snowed on there was so much white ash on it.
