Friday was pretty scary, there was a forest fire just 3 klms from us. The first indication that something was amiss were fire trucks and police cars racing past the house. Then we saw a water bomber and helicopter. Finally word got around that there was a forest fire. I made sure I knew where all the cat carriers were, now, what to do about the chickens, well, have to shove them in the car as well I suppose. Not that it would come to this but if the wind changed direction we could be in serious trouble. After a while we heard it had jumped the road and they evacuated the community nearest the fire. After a few hours we got word that it was pretty well put out except for hot spots. Whew!!! I guess there were people keeping watch all night, we went down the next day and there were still hot spots but the hoses were still there and men keeping an eye on things. The weather has been so hot the woods are tinder dry. Snapped a few pictures of a small section of it by the road.
Very excited today, got my first Bee picture.
