Another day of fires

Post by Big Muddy rancher » Thu Jun 13, 2019 11:36 pm

Got the call about 5:30 fires north of us just west of the neighbors yard, high tailed it over there and when we got there a shower had it under control. Ran into my son and he said we had a couple more fires in our place up towards the lake, Off again up a slippery hill and found another fire, a shower had slowed it but not as much rain as across the valley so we got the last of it out and worked the hot spots/cow pies until we felt comfortable tat it was out. Never did find a third fire but if it was down on the lake shore they got a bit more of a shower.
Another storm rolled through tonight and we got wet around the yard and it seemed a little more general so should be able to sleep tonight.
Left with a full tank of water tonight and even tried out the fill from a dugout option and it filled the tank pretty fast.

My wish is for you to get more rain and less fires.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Yep, lots of lightening yesterday. Looks like a week or so of unsettled weather coming our way.

Hope it brings some rain.

If you're starting to get some showers maybe the weather patterns changing to your favor. Good luck.
