Arizona forest fires are threatening Mount Graham observatory. Latest reports say the fire is within 3/4 of a mile of the observatory.

You know that Pepperidge Farm bread, that stuff is fancy. That stuff is wrapped twice. You open it, and it still ain't open. That's why I don't buy it, I don't need another step between me and toast.

I live in Phoenix, not too far from the fire. I've been watching it and there has been aton of coverage. I hope the Observatory makes it. I saw there are a lot of dead trees around that area due to Bark Beetles. Fingers crossed even though I don't believe in superstitions.
