walking across the parking lot towards Safeway, I saw smoke ahead. some lamebrain had apparently tossed a cigarette butt into one of the wood-chip-filled islands, and it was smoldering in a widening circle. I tried to stamp it out, but it burst into flame and all I got for my effort was a burnhole in my sock. got it back to smoldering, and it took me 3 trips with my coffee mug to and from the water fountain in Safeway until the fire was safely out.
