Unburned

I came to the country today. I already knew my travel trailer and barn would be OK, because I had talked to a neighbor, but I was not sure about the sandhill woods between Delhi and McMahan. As it turned out, the fire did not reach my land. There are many dead trees and shrubs, still sitting there waiting for the next fire.

The weather has turned very hot again after a few days with highs in the low 90's F. Nothing like the hot weather of a couple of weeks ago, though. The thermometer under the shade of the barn says 35.5C. Bull nettle seeds are the only things I can find to eat here today. I'm awfully glad I can go to stores to buy food.

  1. I'm glad your property is okay. I hope it stays okay.

    Have you read The Hunger Games yet? I'm reading the series now. I'm thinking you might like it.

  2. Yes, I've read the whole Hunger Games trilogy. Loved all 3 books. The author, Suzanne Collins, used to write for Nickelodeon TV, including one of Kat's and my favorite shows, Clarrisa Explains It All.

  3. I understand there's a Hunger Games movie in the works. From the teasers, it looks as though it's been well-cast.

  4. Glad your property was not burned. Its been one heck of a summer has it not. We had a fire close to us last weekend. Not a major one but at this point any fire is so dangerous given the conditions.

  5. Thanks for stopping by, Texan. You're so right, even a small fire can turn big fast.
