It was a Hot Time in the Old Town Yesterday Morning  
I found it very interesting to hear that there were two huge fires in a couple of towns that are fairly close to where I live. One was at a curling club and the other was at a Wendy's. Both fires pretty much gutted both facilities. Damage was estimated at $1.1 million for the curling club and $750,000 for Wendy's. So, that's about $2 million in damages for just two fires. Wow. sean_montgomery and I were talking about it yesterday and the figures that I have are new. I think she'll be surprised at this.

I am pleased to see that Affairs of the Heart continues to get reviews. I like that. Hopefully more people get to it as the days move along. On the fic front, I signed up for the next 12 Days event and it should be interesting. Believe it or not, I have an idea on what I want to do with it. I just have to wait on bistyboo1974 to confirm my prompt for my story. I'm really getting excited about doing this one.

Holy cow! That's certainly different from what we came up with yesterday!

It certainly was. The estimate for the curling club was the same as I heard yesterday, $1.1 million. The Wendy's fire, I heard on the radio that it was $400 thousand and in the paper today, I saw it was $750 thousand. That's a $350 thousand more than the original. Some estimate jump though.

Oh, those fires sound bad.

I hope you get your prompt -- it's my favouritest city in the world (where I went to grad school).

Yeah, those fires were nasty. The good thing was that no one got hurt. In time, the rebuilding process will begin.

I did get my prompt. Yes!! So, I'm formulating my story in my head and probably start working on it in a week or two.
