Friday, December 26

started out the christmas week with a pretty big apartment fire. a few famillies were displaced but luckily no one was injured. the blaze started at 4 a.m., so I didn't get to the scene until later on that morning.

with nothing scheduled for christmas eve, i went out to a local church's first live nativity.
