#100WW — Wildfires

DBCA1D16-D8B0-4398-B592-C93F26D91E7EThe road is still closed. They said it would be under control by now, that we could all head back to our homes. But they were wrong. I can see by the yellow, orange, and gold glows of the night sky that the wildfires are still raging.

Many of the homes in my neighborhood — maybe even mine — have been lost to the flames. Personal possessions up in smoke. Precious memories destroyed.

They say it’s due to climate change. Higher temperatures and stronger winds create a landscape that allows fires to spread faster and farther.

This ain’t no hoax.

    Very apt for the prompt. And probably true for some people too.

    I just can’t imagine the stress levels of living in an area that has such high fire risks. Good take on the prompt.

    I love your take on this image – particularly focusing on the ‘fiery’ sky and looping it back to your passion for commenting on current events.

    Brilliant 🖤
