I suppose the big “news” of our weekend is a wildfire in the mountain across the road from us. Fireworks and carelessness caused several fires in our area this weekend. Combine that with our hot, dry weather and its a recipe for disaster. Stewart Mountain (the one mentioned in the news article) is what I see out my front window. I’m looking at it right now, as a matter of fact. Yesterday we packed up our photos and irreplaceable documents in case we need to leave. This morning our house smells like wood smoke and there is a thick haze of smoke everywhere. Air quality is considered “unhealthy” and we are supposed to stay inside with windows closed. Given the fact that it was in the high 80’s yesterday and expected to be today as well, it is likely to be a long day. Yesterday we were serenaded by the sounds of three helicopters getting water from a nearby lake and pouring it on the fire. On top of our own fires, we also have smoking drifting in from wildfires in Canada.
We celebrated the fourth with some good friend of ours. I wasn’t planning on taking any pictures…but Hannah was looking so adorable and was so happy with her mama…I ran inside to grab my camera and take a few shots. I am so glad I did! Be sure and check out Hannah’s newborn photos as well.
