70 Degrees almost became 5000 degrees

While Phoenix burns this week, we took 70 Degrees and headed to our cabin in the White Mountains of AZ where it's 70 degrees!
We woke up at 4 am almost being thrown out of bed. Turns out we were almost obliterated by a meteor that hit not far away and lit up the night skies all the way throughout the state.

Watch: Arizona meteor sightings caught on video - CBS News

I've almost been taken out by lightning, fallen off cliffs, near dehydration, etc. I can now cross off being nearly obliterated by a meteor from my bucket list.

Wow, that was close. So much for Escaping. You'll never look at that cabin the same.

Kinda reminded me of The World According to Garp when he was seeing a house to buy with the Realtor and a plane crashed into the house. Turning to the Realtor he says I'll take it! Stunned the Realtor asks Why? Garp responds Because what are the odds of that happening again.....

Oh, for crying out loud. I usually get my big laughs at the beginning of the day but this took the cake.

Knowing that you are safe, what a kewl event to have happen.

Greg, what do you mean when you say you took 70°, was that the ambient temp?

That makes sense rereading it. Curious as to the significance of the name.
