Got word that there was a fire up our way, perhaps even on our place. YIKES!
"Two trees were struck by lightning and smoldered all night. In the morning when things dried out a bit and it got warmer, it took off. A couple who live miles away on a hill saw smoke, called me and asked me to check it out. They have a great view of the valley and are responsable for spotting quite a number of fires. It was a small fire, but had the potential to take out quite a bit of property. As it was, the fire came to within about 50 feet of the cabin."
Another neighbor said he'd drive up and take a look.
