What I Bought When The County Caught On Fire
I'm in Portland. The Columbia Gorge is burning. With the heat and the smoke and the falling ash and the evacuations, I am finding it hard to not feel like the world is ending. I should clarify that at the time I bought these items, evacuations were still far away. Still, the lines at the store were long and the water section was nearly half empty.
