The fire to the north of us has burned 12,500 acres and is 85% contained with full containment expected this weekend. Thanks to great efforts by firefighters, over 800 of them, and mild winds, the fire did not reach our canyon. Firefighters are my heroes and I am so grateful for all the work they do here in the heat, every summer without fail. They camp out in their fire camps, they get up early or stay up all night working, patrolling, piloting helicopters and on and on. Thank you so much for all that you do.
Love this photo.....ReplyDelete
Great photo--& thank heaven for police & firefighters!!ReplyDelete
great encouraging news on the fire containment. LOVE that tiny bunny!ReplyDelete
we are okay w/ mosquitoes here. we've had 2 confirmed cases of west nile virus in our county - 1 in our 'town', and of course, dallas is doing its aerial assault on them this week...
Such a cute photo Inger! And yes, let's not forget these men and women who keep so many of us safe!!!ReplyDelete
Yes! The wild land fire fighters are an amazing group. Living in Arizona I appreciate all they do too.ReplyDelete
What an interesting photo, thanks for sharing, Inger! The fires out there in the West are so awful and I’m glad none of the fires reached your canyon. Yes, firefighters are heroes, I agree 100 percent!ReplyDelete
Vilken bild! Snyggt jobbat. Vi har haft fint väder idag igen +24. Härligt aug väder. Klagar inte på vårt semesterväder. Nu skall det bli lite regn imorgon men bra det för gräsmattan börjar bli brun på vissa ställen och blommorna är lite vissna.ReplyDelete
Kram från oss!
Glad to hear the firefighters are corralling that nasty fire. It's tough work, indeed. Thanks for the support; the guys appreciate it.ReplyDelete
Too bad humans couldn't learn to share the way those critters do.
Hey; where's the picture of Samson?
Firefighters are great guys...the Pres was one! Glad you are safe, Inger!!! Adorable bunny picutre...:)JPReplyDelete
Glad to hear they are getting a handle on the fire there. Guess we will be seeing our bill from State Board of Equalization soon on $150 Fire Tax, hope it goes towards Cal Fire and not spent somewhere else in the Governor's BudgetReplyDelete
My nephew is a fire captain down south there, not sure which dept exactly anymore. Love the little bunny in the photo!ReplyDelete
What a great shot! Thanks for the good news about the fire.ReplyDelete
Great photo, Inger! And I join you in saluting the brave men and women who sacrifice much to protect us. We don't do anything by ourselves. It takes all of us working together. And it goes without saying I'm relieved your canyon is safe. These fires spread as if stroked by Dante.ReplyDelete
Aww.. this picture is adorable. That's great to hear about the fire. Good job, firefighters!ReplyDelete
So glas the fires haven't come too close. It's a terrifying thing. Love the. Photo.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear that the fires should be contained. We drove by one in Washington - and we saw quite a bit of scorched land on all of our travels. It is so dry everywhere we have been. It's scary!ReplyDelete
