We are enjoying a brief respite from the record breaking heat – now it is only in the 90′s! We are about 6″ behind on rain.
The creek has been dry for a couple of months.
It looks deceptively lush in the shade.
On the 5th of July we had a grass fire probably started by fireworks about a mile away. With everything so dry, it didn’t take long for it to get to our land where it burned some trees and two hay fields and part of another.
The fire department got it out just before it would have gotten into the woods that separate the fields from where the house is, maybe a quarter of a mile away! As it is we were getting lots of cinders in the wind. Kind of scary!!
