The Sky Is Falling!!!

Well, not exactly, but a good portion of the mountains south east of the Lodge is on fire.  Over 7100 acres have burned, including 92 structures and one fire truck.

This is what I fear every year - wild fires.  I thought we were almost out of the woods without one single fire in our little piece of paradise until yesterday.  The Fourmile Fire has grown like crazy and there was another, smaller fire in the Tahosa Valley, just a couple of miles from the Lodge.

The smoke from the Fourmile Fire is visible on satelite...

Scary stuff...

That just makes me sick. Not even kidding... I am getting choked up thinking about anything burning near there.

Sending you some of our blessed rain and hope that you stay safe and smokeless.

Be careful out there girlie.

Seems like every year there are so many bad fires. Hope it ends soon.

The smoke would do me in. Argh! Be careful.

Praying the fires end soon without coming near you!
