We always listen to music during the day. We listen to several different local stations depending upon our reception. We're just miles from Chicago, but some days are better for some stations than for others.
For the past few days, though, I've been listening to compact discs only. The news about the San Diego fires is so overwhelming our disc jockeys update listeners constantly. And, of course, the devastation is such that it's important to keep people updated. The problem is our four-year-old twins are quite precocious and actually process what is being said. After one station talked about making sure your family had a fire escape plan, the brunette twin asked me about our fire escape plan.
It's always a good thing to talk about, but I was washing dishes and didn't really listen to what the disc jockey said. (Also, I was kind of hoping their father would be home for these conversations.) Of course, my concern is the radio reports will scare the girls. My hope, though, is that we'll soon be able to turn on the radio again because the fires are over. However scared our girls might feel must be nothing compared to how scared all the people, especially children, really affected by the fire must be feeling.
