This time of year, it's not unusual for the air to get a little smokey as neighbors burn off parts of their yards to control weeds (dumb in my mind).  Today was smokier than usual, and we figured out that the woods across the river from us was on fire.  We couldn't directly see flames because of a ridge blocking the view, but the air got quite smokey in every direction.  First the fire squads arrived and worked as far in as they could get with their vehicles.  Then the fire chopper started dropping water from its large bucket.  Finally, as the sun was setting, we saw a bulldozer over there scraping up the ground to make sure any remaining smoldering areas had been covered.

Thank you, WeeZee!  Happy Mother's Day to all moms and grandmas from me as well.  Gee, I just had a thought how many children and grandchildren to we all collectively have?

Would ya'll be willing to add yours and let's see what we come up with?   Is anyone game?

okay, if you're willing to play along, just copy the above between the lines and then add your own to it in another post.  How many do we contribute to this world?

Thankfully there are no neighbors on that side of the river.   We were a bit concerned when the wind came up and we could see stumps glowing orange in the dark of the night, but then some snow fell and snuffed everything out.  Yep - snow on May 11.

Nancy, I guess in this case snow in May is a comforting thing. Any idea what started the fire?

Here is my big total so far, as you all can see I'm lacking in the DGG category. Maybe someday.
