Very Lucky

The sound of rain was a welcomed change this morning from the low
 drumming of helicopters and steady paraded of tanker plains overhead.

Friday a fire started less then 6 miles from our farm and burned as close as 4.
We lucked out, as it moved north and east, away from us.
However the sirens were a reminder of those in it's path.

Today the quite is very noticeable.

The fire is 75% contained, the evacuations have all been lifted,
 no lose of life and only one house.

Lucky indeed.

I've been watching this on your FB posts- glad you are out of harm's way. The rain is a blessing, hope the fire will be 100% contained now.
