Some YouTube videos to watch of the fires burning Click Here.
There are several videos on the page you can watch of the Martin Mars water plane from Canada. Very interesting stuff.(-: All these fires are within a few mins. of where I live. So far we are safe from immediate danger.
So far the Hens are hanging in there. I changed their water several times today and added more of the powder. I think they are wondering what I am doing with that. (-:
Its to hot and smokey to go outside so I am sitting in the house watching t.v.
So many people are losing their homes to fires. It is really scary and sad. I guess there is not much they can do. The fires are just eating up the country.
About 8 years ago we had a terrible fire burn through here and we almost lost our home, so I know what it is like to go through that. It is something you don't get over. You are totally helpless and scared. We were so lucky we had my Dad, DH and Son here to help with building fire trails around the house and watering the roof...or it would have went up in a puff of smoke. The pine trees were literally blowing up. I watched from about a mile away on the road as one after another just went up in a ball of flames. It was totally amazing. You could see the fire just rip across the land and keep on going. I really thought our house was gone at that point. It was all because of my Dad, DH and Son that it was saved. So a big thanks to my guys!!(-: Although it was a dangerous operation and I would never recommend anyone staying and trying to fight a fire on their own. My dad use to fight wild fires back in the day so he knew what he was doing. I just pray things get under control soon.
