You might've heard a little about a wildfire last week out my way. It was in my neighborhood on the west side. Thankfully, we're on the east side. The trick is, there is basically only one way out of the area. The fire got very close to that access road. Sadly, one family lost their home. As you can tell by the photos that it's the dry season here. It's very, very dry. It was definitely too close for comfort.
I'm very thankful that the fire department worked so hard for days to keep it under control. It only burned 355 acres. Not nearly as big as the Colorado, Oklahoma, or New Mexico fires this year.
Today I had a visit from a little roadrunner.
Yesterday, I watched two Egrets check out my neighbor's yard.
And the moon was beautiful over the Valley.
