Disaster

(Not to me or mine - don't freak out, Mom!)

I never blog about the news - that's what the media is for - but this one is literally so close to home.  We live about five miles from Reno-Stead airport, and every year they have air races.  I kinda worry about a plane crashing on my house, but it's far back in the ranks of worries, like a big earthquake or a wildfire.  Well, tonight a P-51 crashed into the stands on the last race of the night.  Apparently it's pretty bad.  My heart goes out to the victims.

  5. Funder--I have friends that attend that event every year. They were there at the time, but are fine. I was so scared until I reached them. And my thoughts are with the families and friends of those who were injured and/or died.
