Well, tomorrow is more PT. More accurately, my having a chat about hitting my L5 and talking about my SI joint when I just need a damn back massage to help the muscle heal. If she balks? She's done. I'm dissing her to my docs, an dgood luck to her getting referrals. Nope.
Toay in 1881, the American red Cross provided disaster relief for the first time, after the Great Fire of Michigan (1881).
For those unaware, and most are, many regions of the country suffered huge wildfires after logging and/or due to logging, with some qualifying as actual firestorms. (IIRC, onein the 1890s in Minnesota hit hot enough to melt railroad steel. Yikes.) And, as in other cases, drought plus high winds plus heat plus rotten fire protection methods, came to a deadly fire on the "thumb" of Michigan in 1881, killing over 200.
