Well, it has been a harrowing few weeks for all of us and a terrible time for a few amongst us. Our sympathies go out to those who lost anything—and for some, everything—to the fires which rage on still, under varying degrees of containment. Those in temporary evacuation locations have our sympathy. Now the snow has fallen and for the first time in weeks the skies are blue. Let us give thanks and thoughts to those who have been on the frontline of the fire attack. The fire fighters must be exhausted and those coordinating and monitoring the traffic and evacuations at the end of their tethers. These people have been giving their all and risking their lives for properties with which they may have no connection. We salute you.
