Again!

3pm tuesday and a new fire is burning south of us
400 acres
its hot and breezy down there today
pray for the firefighters
and the chopper pilots
will update periodically
-------------------------------------

Pre dawn smoke smell
hanging in the cool air
grim but determined men
begin to suit up for their day in hell
a community prays
God's mercy and provision
it's not a good day
but not a bad one either
we live in the mountains
after all!
----------
update saturday - fire surrounded
humidity going up
humanity having success this tim over nature's forces.
a thankful mountain community breathes a sigh of relief

this makes my lost keys seem so trivial. I hope everything goes well.

update: fire laying down - 1000 men and seven aircraft are keeping it small. 60% containment so far
YES!
