Your kids are really growing, Nana. I'm glad that everyone is headed out to school.
The fire on my side of the mountains is all but out. But it's still burning further north of me. I think I will be able to sleep tonight
Sweet dreams all.

Sweet dreams all. The part of the fire that was closest to me, they lit a backfire to help combat it. My van is still packed and I'm ready if necessary. But I'm going to trust in God and the fire department and go to bed.

Sending prayers Tina.

I am enjoying the sight of a good rain. It has been so hot here...with showers every day but this rain is a cool one.

I harvested my first crop of bush beans yesterday...tomorrow I'll make some mustard bean preserves.

Good morning. I am not evacuated. Everything is still moving away from me so my personal danger is less and less.
Over night news on the fire has not changed much, still 82,000 people evacuated. 18,000 acres burned. Unknown number of structures demolished.
I do so feel for my neighbors. And I feel for the people caught on the roads.
Your beans sound delicious, Sunny.

Well, it's up to 30,00 acres burned. Now that daylight is here and they could crunch the numbers. All they have is dozens of buildings and that is a number I'd like to hear more about. I feel so bad for the people who lost homes. And grateful I am not one of them.

Well still 30k acres, and 1300+ firefighters on it. 10 fixed wing aircraft and 15 copters. Now they've brought in cadaver dogs because the fire came through so fast that they aren't sure everyone had time to get out.
We are to hit about 103 today. That is hot without a fire. And murder for fire fighters. I feel for them too.

Sunny, I agree with Tina about the beans.

Did you cook any with potatoes for supper? THAT is how I like them.

Tina...I will keep praying. I hope the fires continue to stay away from your house.

about the temperatures and the fires...Sometimes we just need to shake our heads & thank God that there are people like the firefighters to help keep us safe. They are a blessing.

Yes, thank God for the fire fighters. All of the fire fighters here are volunteer, so if your house catches on fire they have to leave work, or get up in the middle of the night, then go to the firehouse and get the truck. By that time your house is burned down. I have always been a big worrier about fire. I won't even go to sleep or outside with my dryer on.

Hi, Tina. Wow, I just watched the news so I could see the fires. That is awful. And they said it's not getting better. And the floods in Louisiana. I have not watched the news in months, I watch Andy Griffith every evening. I try to stay oblivious to what is happening around me these days.

Yes, I do like to stay up on the news. The fire more than doubled today to 65k acres. That a lot of fire. That mostly knocked the floods off my news.

I can understand that you would want to stay on top of the news, Tina. So happy to see you on here. I hope that they get the fires under control soon. This whole situation is scary to say the least.

Yes, Cindy, so good to see you.

They reported the acreage wrong earlier. It's 25,625 or so acres of burned ground. I can live with that. I can breath now. And I can go to bed.
Sweet dreams all.

Good morning. breakfast

I am glad that the fires are not as bad as first thought. That must make you feel better.

I see I failed to come in & say good night last night...I am so sorry.

Today I have a meeting with TPTB at my MIL's Nursing home.

Teddy is down watching them fill helicopters with Phos-Chek. That is the word for the red fire retardant. They brought tankers up to the ranch next door and are filling the copters up there. Very cool. Jonni drove him down in my van.

Good morning. It's going to be a good day. And it is Friday too!
The fire was creeping this way. At least one segment of it. But they jumped on it heavily and I am confident they got it suppressed about a mile away. I feel safe.
I feel for those who have lost their homes.

Good morning. I'll have to go out I think. I haven't been out because of the evacuation thing. It can be difficult to get back home when you live on the edge of the evac zone. It has been over a week since I have gone out and I need bread and milk and things. So I will go out early and get it done. As soon as the stores open in a couple of hours.
I hope everyone has a great day.
