    Suddenly catastrophe struck! Melanie was hosting the course from her place in California and in the distance she could see a raging bush fire approaching with gusto. For the next few hours we were updated.  The fire was getting closer and closer. Just then she had to leave us while she dealt with the emergency. I can’t remember now how long she was off line but it seemed like an eternity.
