Local Fire

Blogging time was preempted by fire watching. Steve and I put the kids to bed and then drove out to see how bad the fire we had been smelling all evening really was. Our "quick trip" lasted an hour and a half as we watched the fire eat it's way down the mountain and engulf home after home. The wind is fierce tonight and is fanning the flames and spreading the fire. We have many friends in the area and pray that their homes will not be included in the casualties.

(My iPhone did not do the scene justice, so I borrowed this picture from the Deseret News.)
