Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

I think they put so many men on it because at first they were worried that it would get the Lab, but now it's gone past the Lab so they're not worried about that any more. When it got close to the Lab, it made national news. Thanks for posting this. My hysband keeps asking me to look up how the Las Conchas Fire is doing and I keep forgetting too.
