It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

After running a few errands in Champaign with Jo, a pretty severe looking storm started to roll in. We stopped to eat and wait it out.  
While we ate, there was a kitchen fire. We were at Panda Express so it was easy to see the whole thing. The alarms went off and we had to go out in the storm. We headed back in with the two other people in the background of this picture to ask for foam box to take our food to go. Remember that storm? Yeah, it was getting worse and the fire was out so we just sat eating our cold food half in the to-go box. Did I mention the electricity went out for a minute or two? 

Apparently, the staff had shut off the alarm by themselves because soon a firetruck roars up and fireman show up. Notice as this point, new customers who aren't even aware of the recent drama have come into the restaurant. They stomp through the restaurant doing their job, climb around, and do a great job of educating the staff so they know what to do next time. Storm is starting to break up...

  1. What an exciting outing! Josiah works at Panda Express now, and he tells me wok fires are pretty common. He also came home the other day with a (well-covered, very hygienic) bloody hand. Oy.
