I see there are fires Burning in Bend, OR and some homes are on evacuation standby.
Let us know that you are ok, please.
Gosh! My name in lights!
Yes, I'm doing a-ok. Wildfires are a part of life here, unfortunately. The one that you're seeing on the news (Bessie Butte) is pretty near our house, but not near enough to be evacuated (maybe 15 miles?). We had quite a view of the smoke plume and flames last night. Here's a link to more info:
It's been one fire after another all summer. Fortunately no homes have been lost, but the skies are all hazy and it's hard to look at all those burned snags! It's good for the forest health though...
Thanks for thinking of me!
in our prayers! Keep that fire 15 miles away!! And no one injured!!
