I mean really, really, weird.....
We had spent the day here:
we came home in the dusk, Did chores as it got darker, and kept noticing these really weird clouds. (Which of Course I did not take a photo of)
We hadn't been in the house for 5 minutes and the phones started ringing.... Our neighbors asking if we were okay. I am thinking, how did they know I walked my rear off, and worked, and needed wine? So I say - sure - what's up?
Umm.... have you looked out your window?
Nope - and so I do - Oh My Gosh - the East was on fire! And of course, they tell me the fire is moving west. Do we need help?
I immediately thought of the ranchers who I know that live between us and that fire - and called her. They were on evacuation notice.... so I figured we ought to be ready.
The boys grabbed their computers, i-pods, and action figures. They were on top of things!!
Now - we mow a perimeter around all our outbuildings, the house ( of course) and the corrals. So we were sort of gauging what would need to be done, moved, and loaded. And if we could add water to the mix of things to keep the fire down?
At the same time watching the flames..... as they.... got smaller, and smaller, and finally died out.
Another Call to my friend - she said they had it mostly out, and would be watching for the hot spots.
Shew..... So today... you know where we are headed right? Got to go check out what burned, and how it started, and maybe gawk a little......
And here is my question for the day?
I have been tracking my calories in each day - If I didn't get my glass of wine until 1 am - does it count for today's calories? Or yesterdays?? This is a tough question you know!
