Rain, rain, come this way

I was literally afraid to leave my home today.

Afraid to leave for fear that when I returned it would be burned to the ground.

And the fact that I live two blocks away from a fire department doesn't quell my anxiety. The constant roaring of the sirens (all day long, by the way), was not comforting in the least.

If we don't get some rain soon ... well.

We just need some rain.

I've been worrying about you and the other OK bloggers I know in your part of the state. Up here in Stillwater there haven't been any fires, but we live in a more rural area of town and are surrounded by OSU's horse and cattle ranges.

I'm sending my best thoughts your way!

I was afraid to go asleep last night fearing my yard would catch on fire. Are all the dogs going nuts with the sirens constantly going off?

TII - Thanks for the positive energy ... hopefully all of this mess will steer clear of your neck of the woods.

Ceres - Believe it or not, the dogs right around my house don't get too bothered by the sirens (thank God).

Kerry - Of yeah, my home is fine. I'm not too close to all of the bad stuff. Hopefully none os us will be.

Hopefully things will work out and the fires will be under control soon... who knows, maybe there'll even be a blizzard.
