There are a few homes on the mountainside above Cedar City. They’re mostly that log-cabin / rustic style that I suppose is meant to be useful for living in the woods. I’ve often wondered what the people who live up there do when the snow comes down thick. I don’t think any snowplow goes up there with any frequency. Maybe they store a bunch of food for the long winter snow-ins.
Today I looked up and saw a column of smoke and flame coming from the mountain. I couldn’t see if it was around a house, but it’s right in that ‘neighborhood.’ And I can’t figure out how a fire would start up there on a clear day except by the humans who live in the piles of wood.
Now I wonder what all the other home-owners are thinking. There’s a fire just down the slope from them and certainly no fire department up at the top of the mountain to rescue them.
Maybe this is why I don’t want to live in a cabin.
