it's raining ash

Three wildfires in our area yesterday. It was raining ash in Abby's backyard last night and the whole place smelled like a campfire. Two big fires north of us. Summer in the west.

Not good. Hopefully they'll get under control soon. Abby doesn't like her yard gettin' all ashy, I bet!

This looks familiar. We have two fires still burning in neighboring Lake County and only Sunday did they get one extinguished on the outskirts of our town. The morning sun is an angry yellow.

P.S. I wonder how many times we wish we could explain to our dogs exactly what is going on to calm their fears--fear they sense in us.

There is a rescue chimp compound by the Taylor Bridge fire. The firemen, bless their souls really worked hard to save it. The chimps were very upset by it all and watched one of the trees on the property go up in flames. Lots of people moving horses and cattle down to the valley and boarding at a fair grounds.

Just imagine the terror in the chimp compound. They have no understanding of what's going on and no way to escape. I'm glad the horses and cattle are being moved. That's what they were doing yesterday in Lake County. Humans were stationed at a nearby Moose Lodge waiting for any news of their house, its survival and of course news of when they can return.

One of my best friends is the Fire Chief. Now, when he calls his wife, he just says, "I don't know when I'll be home."

I've come to look forward to Halloween. That's usually when we get our first rains.

It's all the way over in Wyoming.
