This is also sort of funny.

Yesterday, Mr S. sent me a photo of a big fire that was near his building. The city and the company had issued a shelter in place. Which of course they all ignored.

Mr S. wanted to get photos, and I don't know what the stories of the other guys were.

Later, Mr S. was telling me about it. He said he was walking over with a couple of guys to take pictures. The youngest one - right out of college said "what does shelter in place mean"?

Oh yes. Fine education these kids get.

Oh, oh!! Head of the class!
I know what a shelter in place is! We do those at Piko deGallo's school. I'll admit that I didn't know what that was until last year though.

So, any pictures of the fire?

Well.... it is sort of awkward if you get the alert and you aren't inside of a building.

He did get a couple of shots, but he either got them before or after it was so involved because the smoke is white and it just looks like a big low hanging cloud. (

Gotta go with the youngster on this one. Never heard of the phrase "had issued a shelter in place," and have no idea what it means.

Seriously?! Don't you take the phrase apart? Shelter - in place. I just thought everyone knew what that meant. My bad.
