Summer Fire...

Fire2_2 It is pretty dry in Florida and fires are a part of the landscape at times.  After leaving a movie today we noticed there was dark smoke billowing into the sky.  Seemed it was near our house.  As we turned onto our street we noticed about seven fire and rescue trucks.  Seems the fire was in the woods behind our house.  We gathered with the rest of the crowds behind the house to watch as the helicopter dumped buckets of water and the firemen stood guard.  The fire was a little ways away, but the fear of embers being carried with the wind toward the homes was a concern.  I write this now to say that the trucks have thinned.  It smells bad outside and the sky is cloudy, but thanks to our fire and rescue teams another fire is under control.
