Fire and Flood

Take your pick. I'm currently following a major fire near me, watching the brown and black smoke being blown my way, but knowing that I am not in any danger. It would have to cross a major fwy and burn down the town before I would be forced to leave. So, I'm okay. But, others are not so lucky, and I pray for them. I keep thinking what a grand job my goats have done on the area around my place. Still, you monitor what's going on, and the sky is very ugly right now. Nothing like Calder. But, that wouldn't matter to those forced to flee.

Then, with a category 4 hurricane coming ashore tomorrow, I am frightened for those folks that are going to have to endure that. Can't catch a break. Kabul airport massacre, Hurricane Ida, and umpteen fires all around...I am listening to music with my animals at my feet, which is where they like to be. Only the loyal goats are stuck outside, but they have shelter and water. It's hot, so hot. Tomorrow it will be the same, the news filled with reports of what happened to New Orleans. When the sun goes down and I can't see the smoke anymore, I may switch to the cameras and buoy reports. I feel somewhat guilty for being able to do that, just sit here while other people are so affected by climate glitches. Kinda teary eyed, but it's just my nerves. We'll see what happens tomorrow. Good luck, people, praying for you.

1. it's terrible

then you add in Covid, what's going on in Afghanistan, how people are suffering in Haiti, it feels overwhelming

People, please donate what you can to help....for example, I made an extra donation to Doctors Without Borders, and will be donating to a refugee assistance program locally.

Will check who needs help from Hurricane Ida......everyone stay safe, don't take any chances.

Good luck to you, and I will do more than pray.

3. These days, anyone who has a safe home

away from fires, floods or hurricanes, does not have a friend or relative in danger in the military, and is able to stay free of infection is a fortunate person who can reach out to help someone else with donations, moral support, or consolation.
