Pray for us here in Lewiston
We’ve had a wildland fire that has started this afternoon and this is the view of the mountain that burnt in ’99 looking toward the fire. It seems like we’re okay for right now but we and everyone else here, could use your prayers.
Thank God for obedient animals, the sheep and cows and horses have followed the quad up to our yard which is an acre of irrigated lawn. They’re camped out right now wrecking havoc on our yard, but that’s okay with me… it’s a ranch after-all. Simon and I have a very defensible space, the fire is headed away from my parents and though it started at his parent’s neighborhood, it is headed away from them. We are gathering everything can for an easy escape but we aren’t leaving. We’ve got things very well protected. I’ll update more as soon as I can.
Update: It is skunking down the back side and is at the top of our neighbor’s ridge. Thankfully, as you can see it is staying low though we don’t have trees for it to get into. I probably have an hour left of internet and then will most likely lose it. We’ve got a sprinkler on the lean-to nearest the trees at our barn and a big trough filling with water and buckets, generator, etc. near by. We’re going to hold it at the barn and our house is still pretty safe. We’re confident.
