Summer and Fire

We have been so hot and dry.  

some days the temperatures were triple digits.  We are used to hot dry summers, just not that hot.

It kept climbing,
 climbing until it passed 110.

The worst  Fire broke out.

In the worst of all areas for a fire, 

the sunny slope area is residential,

homes of family and friends were being threatened. 

The homes in this area were saved, thanks to heavy duty fire fighters.

The plane would skim across the river, picking up water

and deliver it to the fire area.

A before and after.

We remain, in red flag warnings.
