Clear Skies!! And Many Thanks!!

Whew, fire...SO HAPPY it never made it all the way to our house!!

THANK YOU for your prayers and wonderful well-wishes!! I love you online friends!

I stayed up through the night to keep watch, and thankfully the wind turned, the fires decreased and turned away from us.

I don't know if there were any residences involved at all, because we don't have local news, but I think in this area it was finally contained.
We're still rooting for the rest of the state, as fires always threaten when it's dry and hot like this...

Rain came for a bit this morning about 6 AM, and the air looks pretty clear in this neck of the woods. Rain, rain, come again!!

Again, THANK YOU for your wonderful support...what a terrific community!!
And very, very grateful to God...

Many smiles from me to you! I am glad you and yours escaped peril!
It is scary when danger comes so close. Have a great Monday!

I am so glad! The rain must have felt heavenly after all that waiting.

Hooray to no smoke and no fire. That's super news.

I've been traveling a lot in my day job, and don't have much access to the interwebs when I do. I was pretty worried when I saw those last pics this morning. Good, good, good.

Christina, Rebecca, Ilex...yes, we're relieved. Thank you so much for your prayers :) I hope you all have a great Monday!

I'm so pleased you're okay Robbyn. I've been thinking of you since I read your previous post on fire and smoke.

Wow. I go to the family reunion and look what happens. I'm very glad all is well, Robbyn. Those fires can be capricious, skipping over entire areas and burning others.

Robbyn said...

Thank you, Sandra and Granny Sue!
(((((((( hugs!!)))))) We're thankful the crisis passed :)

I'm so glad that the fires didn't affect you and that you are safe, too.

We had a huge fire up here in the mountains a couple weeks ago (well, it's still actually burning, but contained) and it burned a number of homes and over 13,000 acres of forest land.

Fires are very scary. They can get out of hand so quickly.
I keep praying for rain. Here in the South West rain is precious.
