A few weeks ago while I was traveling, I bought the audio book, The Other Boleyn Girl. I enjoyed it immensely. After I listened to it, Gail borrowed it. She liked it, too. Since the move of same is in town, we went tonight to see it. Blech. NOTHING like the book!! The movie was good, the acting was excellent, the story was so different that we just kept looking at each other and shrugging! See the movie, but then read or listen to the book. It is much better, and from what I can determine, far more accurate. We stopped for a little dinner after the movie, then headed home.
The winds were awful today, but by this evening it has lessened this evening. I'm glad for that, but we are supposed to have more of same tomorrow. Yuck. I flipped on the TV to watch the weather to see how bad it might be tomorrow, and you won't believe what I have to tell you. Oh, mercy. The Trigo wildfire, near Albuquerque has totally blown up today. It was 80% contained this morning, then during the extreme winds (up to at least 60MPH) we had today, it "exploded," as it was reported, and now is burning our of control, 0% contained tonight! And because of the current situation, it is now declared a "Type 1" fire, meaning that as of tomorrow, wildfire fighting crews will be coming to NM from all over the US to try to once again control the fires. They said 250 homes have been evacuated today.
This beautiful glow is not a sunset. It is the glow of the fire against the smoke of same!!
Crap. Sorry, but I can't believe this. So .... crap.
