It's Friday and it's a Fiesta !! At least it is, thanks to Candid Carrie ! :-)
I was hunting through my Foto Files, this morning, for the picture I was thinking of using for this post, and as usual, I couldn't find it.
However, I did come across these.
Almost two years ago, we had a big fire in the foothills directly in front of us.
Over the week or so that it took to fight the blaze, we had a front row seat.
Some of the most spectacular sights, were those that took place as the sun was setting behind the plumes of smoke that were blanketing the sky.
Hopefully this will not be a preview of what we can expect this summer. It's very dry here, with above normal temperatures.
So far, this January, we have had no storms. If this continues, it will be the first time in something like 150 years, that this has happened.
So, if those of you, that are currently experiencing all that snow and below normal temps, we'd be very grateful if you could send a little bit our way !!!
The trees, that are currently trying to bud, would thank you as well.
