Wildfire Season

Smoldering sun glows, we cannot breathe…

Thick gray smoke, blankets the sky.

No rain forecasted, we cannot see…

Wild fires blaze, trees and homes burn.

Devastation seen, we cannot touch…

Sparks ignite, wildfire season.

The air quality has been at a hazardous level where I live in the Pacific Northwest.  I took these photos yesterday at the lake in Northern Idaho.

We seem to be surrounded by the thick smoke everywhere… lake and home.  Looks like I will be spending much of my time indoors this week. 😉

I’m so thankful for the firefighters who continue to fight for your forests and homes… yet we badly need rain.

Hope you stay safe…

Cheers! 🙂

Precious Puddles

It FINALLY rained this weekend!  In case you haven’t heard on the news, the Pacific Northwest is raging in wildfires!

We are hoping the rain today and (hopefully) during the week and the cooler weather – will help ease the work of firefighters in our area and stop the destruction.  The smoke has been so bad, it has been difficult to breathe the air or see the mountains!  So today I took these photos after the rain at the lake to share with you….

Grab you raincoat and your boots and let’s jump in some puddles!

We continue to pray for rain!

Thanks for taking a walk with me and splashing in some puddles!

Happy Monday!  🙂
