Where there's smoke......

....there's fire.
If you look closely on the left-hand side, you can see
Hubby turning out of our drive to go to the fire.

The wind is really stoking it.

We just stepped out onto the front porch after lunch
and saw what looked like smoke
mingling amongst the clouds.
Sure enough, after one phone call to a neighbor,
we found the source of the fire
which appears to be hay bales burning in a field.
Hubby was out the door and in the fire truck in minutes.
The fire, as of now, is about 10-12 miles away,
but there's a strong wind picking up.
Fall is a season that often brings grass fires to the prairie.
Prayers are going up like smoke to God.


  1. Oh no. I'm praying here that it will be quickly contained. You're still really dry there aren't you?

  2. I hope the fire is put out soon and that no one is hurt. We worry a lot about fires here, too, and when the Santa Catalinas are on fire, at night it looks like molten lava pouring down the mountainside to our houses here in the valley. Scary.

  3. Oh no! Sending up a quick prayer for all of you...hopefully it will be put out quickly. Is this on your property or the neighbors?

  4. I hope all is well and the fire is out. We live in dry country that looks similar to yours --- and know what these types of fires are all about. I'll be praying for the safety of you and your belongings.

    Thanks for your sweet comments on Gracious Hospitality!

    I hope you and yours have a lovely autumn weekend!
