We were fortunate to not have the fires get too close to our home although it was a nerve-wracking week. The fire is almost 100% contained and even though it reached nearly 80 degrees on Saturday…up here…at 8,300′…in March…we are due to get some snow today which we hope will stop the fire completely and to allow those in our community who are still evacuated to get back into their homes.
With that in mind, I wanted to share some love for mountain living. Even though it carries the risk of wildfires, the surrounding beauty and tranquility of the mountains makes it worth the risk.
Although the warm, sunny weather has been lovely, I’m hoping that by tomorrow morning, this will be the view off our back deck again. God knows we need the moisture.
Good Monday morning to you all.
