This was taken at approx. 4:00PM.
The danger is now over till the next time. I believe over fifty people lost their homes & about thirty others have had theirs severely damaged.
Luckily, only a small number of people were injured, not seriously; a very good thing.
Thank you to all the caring friends out there. Does anyone really know for sure, that good wishes & best hopes extended to another, is a waste of time. At this point, I think not. Anyone?
So indulge me if I attribute our good fortune to the caring wishes of others. Good job.

Hi Head.

Glad to see that you are all right. I will be, and I know you will be glad when this burn season is over.

Take care.

That's looks like a photo of the end (or the start) of the world.

I am so very happy that you made it through unscathed.

Glorious photo from an inglorious cause. Once again, you knew what you were doing by staying.

Hi Head.

Just read through yesterday's post. Yikes. I'm glad you're all safe!

As the world turns, is how I see it. You have a drought in the South, fires in the West,
snow in the North, & an idiot in the white house, in the East. The worst disaster is the the one in the East.
Thanks FM

Andif, your happiness is mine also.

Knucklehead said...

Thanks Nancy p,
It`s only from experience. Either you leave or die, or you stay because you know you can handle it. The difference comes from that experience.
I feel very sad for those who lost their homes, but had they stayed they probably would be dead.
That, that didn`t happen, is testimony that they also know when to go.
" C`mon, let me know
should I stay or should I go"

Yup, we got yanked into the lucky, group 'W', at the last minute.
We then had a feast worthy of Alice`s restaurant.
I got up in the middle of the night, last night, to stare & wonder at an incredible 'moonbow'.
The full moon directly overhead had a huge colored ring around it. At the center of the ring, was the moon in stark clarity. Around it, but inside the ring I could see faint stars, but outside the immediate periphery of the ring, it was opaque, preventing stars from visibility. The inner edge of the massive ring was faintly, but discernedly colored in brownish gold, the color I just now think, was from the ash in the atmosphere.
Out of the ashes, beauty raised it`s ugly head.

"Whelll!" as JackBlenny used to say.

It's very good to know that all is well with you, Teri, and critters.

I'm also happy to be back on 2Mg/sec for a while. So, now I'm finally able to get caught up here at WhiteKnuckles.

another firestorm...yawn.

kidding aside, glad you're all safe and well.


Knucklehead said...

The distance between "Hell" & "Whelll!" is sometimes very short.

Knucklehead said...

It does bring people together, although there are better ways to accomplish that.

Andie said...
