Hello this fine morning to y'all --y'all! The wind has been blowing like crazy for hours now and I am hoping that means a storm is on it's way. Although I must go to work soon and can not really enjoy the rain storm much. I am surprised it did not dump on us a few daze back, when I finally gave our vehicle a bath. It was long over due, for sure. Lots new to talk about not really going to get into to much of it this fine morning. As the coffee is still soaking into my soul--and defiantly not waking me up yet for some reason. Speaking of coffee--since I so rarely bring it up on this blog page ;) .....

So while it continues to be very warm here, even with the cloud cover---it just snowed back home in Wyoming. A lot of snow. Every year they get dumped on one last time in April it seems. Another reason I have been stalling on traveling home. Yes I am going to fly there, but than get a rental car. And yes I can drive in the snow, but many of the residents can't. Thus full coverage insurance on this rental car for my voyage. About 0 percent of this being an issue here this April. Although a pretty good sized earthquake was reported up near beautiful Flagstaff a few days back. Here we are dealing with a massive fire. Very close to hear in terms of big fast moving fires with lots of dead beyond dry landscape in between. Sunday I believe--I saw the start of the smoke in the hills by Mexico. By Tuesday it had tripled in size-burning 40,000 acres. And they were talking evacuations of the small towns very near here. Huge winds, with no rain in those clouds, were making conditions almost imposable to predict and fight. Someone eventually turned themselves in---as starting the fire. The poor fool was shooting at exploding targets and set the desert on fire. They have not pressed charges yet, but if any more communities burn down, he is screwed for a long long time. Yesterday they finally had the blaze 60 percent contained! And I have not heard anything about the fire all day long so far today. So am praying the winds today are not raising havoc. Also really hopping these dark clouds are full of rain!
I have seen some amazing pictures and video of the fire---but on my Exploring sight I try not to use other peoples pictures. Here---on this page anything goes---thus why I can't go to public with this page, because everything except my thoughts is swiped of the Internets. ;) So on Wednesday I battled for hours with the smartness of this---and than ventured out to attempt to get well behind the fire lines and get some after shots. Of charred ground and such. You could not get any were close to the fire in any area. Roads blocked off etc. Probably a good thing for me in all actuality. I did spot some areas fully on fire, and I could have accessed them, but it was than 7 at night, and they were ten miles away at least on a trail I would have to walk. I did manage to sneak some kool pictures that evening though. Of the sunset and such--- All of the smoke in the sky kind of gave them a creepy look. Today I am only going to share a couple of these pictures. More tomorrow!
I got lots of pictures of this here barn too.
Just down the road from our house.
I pulled up just as the light was hitting perfect.
More pictures next post if your lucky!
