Rain & Fire
We had a nice rain this week-end early in the morning so it made for nice sleeping. Too wet to check the back forty, but it was probably too wet to work on the fence which was supposed to be finished today. Also can't check to see if the fence builder fixed the road over the dry creek as he said he would. Before the rain there have been three fires in the area so the rain was so much appreciated. The one I wrote about near the airport burned four or five very large Live Oak trees along the street. They look like they are goners but I guess spring will tell the tale. Another fire was on the highway and didn't threaten anything and the third one was in the next town over. It burned a whole vacant lot right up to all the fences. Very near an elderly ladies home on one side and a business on the other. The fire department must have got there to water all along the fence line. We pray for more rain and no more fires.
