How am I supposed to know all the idiosyncrasies of girls? Ribbons! Go figure!

The Angeles National Forest is raising its fire danger level from moderate to high on Friday because of the virtual abse nce of rain so far this year and forest lands full of tall, dry grasses. Nathan Judy, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service, said the designation is an effort to raise public awareness about just how vulnerable the forest is to a potentially devastating and fast-spreading wildfire. While the raised fire danger level does not mean new campfire restrictions, Judy said visitors are urged to be especially careful, including making sure that they do not park their vehicles on tall grasses.
