So far - nothing is coming close to the fire that burned 190,000 acres when the Ponder children were in middle school. Keeping our fingers crossed. Abby very busy supervising all the storms. Another one expected today. I heard the last time this weather happened was in the early 40s and sparked over 500 fires across the state. The east side of the state if fairly dry compared to the westside (Seattle) and much of it looks like this - sagebrush or wheat fields.
