Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Tuesday morning when I was heading out to work I saw what looked like fog. Opening the door, it smelled like smoke. And the cloud-cover I thought was over us was actually smoke plumes. It was all over the town and it was from another town 30 miles away or so that caught fire on Monday, but from what a coworker told me it was just open grass area and not like, the actual town. All the smoke was gone by the early afternoon.
Today, just now actually, my mother gives me this call and is in like some goddamn frenzy about how I need to pack things up and evacuate, because she's just become aware of the fires. What triggered this for her is another county south of us getting evacuated, portions of at least. She's huge into panicking and worrying (if it rains, she asks me if it has flooded). I mean, fires are scary and all and I'm keeping alert, but we're not in any danger just yet. Oh and then she managed to tie it into politics because she's a goddamn nut.
So yeah. Anyone ever get evacuated due to fire threat before? How obvious does it seem it's gonna happen?
