This season has been so dry that living up here in the mountains is a huge fire hazard and evacuation a huge possibility. Yesterday, there was a huge fire by Little America. Firefighters fought to control it for a good portion of the day. Today, right now, as I'm typing this...there is a HUGE fire between Mount Elden (the mountain we live near) and the San Francisco Peaks. Our home doesn't appear to be in danger at the moment. We didn't even know there was a fire until we went out for lunch for a relaxed, lazy Sunday.
Here are some pictures we took.
This was on our way to lunch.
This was driving up 4th street to our house.
Please pray that the firefighters are able to put it out and for everyone's safety, especially the firefighters and the people who's homes are affected.
