making it work, cameras, fire on our mountain

1 I wondered what it might feel like to do a dispatch shift the entire day. It felt great! It's a short shift, it's like a game of Tetris, there are great people to work with and no big mess ups!
2 Coming home to Mr P putting up security cameras around the house. We had someone try to enter the house early in the morning....we both woke to the sound of the door opening. No one was there, but the inside light in the garage was on so Mr P is working to get things tightened up. I believe he said something about "Fort Knox!"
3 There's a forest fire on the mountainside. It's about 3 minute drive straight above us but across a highway. It's all closed off and for now the skies are quiet. We drove up to see how large it was and it's big. 30 hectares. We are safe here and feeling very grateful that the fire hasn't jumped the road. More tomorrow.

Someone creeping in at night is a little too scary to even think about! Yes, full speed ahead on Ft. Knox! Stay safe : )
