Thank you friends, we've gotten the break in the weather that we sorely needed, 1.10 inch of rain!

You could almost hear the earth drinking...

Trees like that are volatile fuel. That is amazing. So sad that all this is burning.

AC and VIP Congrats! I can definitely imagine it, since Wenatchee had horrible fires raging for weeks on end last fall. The air quality was so horrible, we wore special masks. The sky was not visible for weeks.

Wow! That is VERY HOT! Sure reminds me of our 2 very close fires we had here in past few years. Torching like this. Very scary and felt so helpless. And we were looking at them from 5 or more miles away. Great capture.
Congratulations on the AC & VIP!
