Hope everyone had a safe and fun
4th of July!
Bailey will be doing a lot of this today
as he likes to bark at all the firework noise
which goes on half the night around here
so no one gets much sleep.
Mom was a little nervous cause it has
been very hot here and the wind
came up just before dark.
We did not want to see a repeat of last weekend
Last Saturday we had a late evening
thunder storm come through
Sunday evening we heard sirens
and then fire trucks started going up our road.
Then we saw the smoke
and more and more fire trucks going up the road
Before long it looked like this only a few miles
from our house!!
It is thought that the fire was caused by the
lightning the night before.
Dad got out the garden hose to have it ready
in case we needed it.
On Monday the wind came up again
and the fire grew from
125 acres to over 1000 acres
Do you see the spotter plane??
This tanker truck was going to fill up from
the irrigation canal and Dad was there ready to help.
Thankfully the fire went up into the hills
and not down into the houses below
No structures were lost.
We thank all the hard working emergency people
that helped keep us safe!
Have a great weekend everybody!!
We are the PugRanch Kids
