Fire!!

While driving home to take Heather some much needed mash potatoes and gravy (she has oral surgery last week and that's all she can eat) and to comfort each other on the passing of summer and the first day of school, we saw it and gasped...thick smoke and an eerie bright orange sun. We drove to find the source and the mountain was on fire. The planes were dropping retardant, ash was falling from the sky and it was hard to breath so we didn't stay long. I did snapped some great (awful to say "great pictures" when it's a fire destroying our beautiful mountains) pictures and a link to view the news story. The news said the air quality was very very bad and to stay indoors so that is where we are now, hope they can get it out soon..

Fischer REALLY wanted to go see the fire! He would have loved seeing the planes in action. We just saw lots of smoke and contemplated what the cause could be and exactly what the firefighters were doing to handle it. He is REALLY into firemen.
