Mom, You Were Right

Recently eaten: chicken cordon bleu
Recent annoyance: flurries, okay, but where's my blizzard?

I am certain that this is my Mom's worst nightmare. between leaving the stove on and leaving the door unlocked, she is probably tearing her hair out right now. On a somewhat related note, what is with the photo they posted with this article? They couldn't find one generic photo of a fire in Japan? They had to use the one of a car bomb?

Fire station burns after cooking mishap (via YahooNews)
A blaze broke out at a fire station in Japan this week after a firefighter left a cooking stove burning as crew members left the station to respond to emergency calls.

Most of the duty staffers were out on a call when their colleague, alone at the station and cooking dinner for the crew, was himself called out.

In his haste to respond to the call, he forgot to turn the stove off, said Seiji Hori, a Nagoya City Fire Department official. Ten fire trucks from other stations put out the fire, Hori added.
