Oklahoma Burning

You may have seen on the news...Oklahoma and north Texas are ablaze! We have so many wildfires today the local news station has preempted regular programming all afternoon and evening. One of the fires is just west of Stillwater, maybe 15 miles from us. Another fire in Midwest City has burned entire neighborhoods. Giving us a little taste of what Australia went through in February. The winds have been terrible, spreading the fires with unholy rage.

Please pray for those families affected. And for rain. We need rain.


Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Take care - it is scary being close to bushfires - we were within 5-7miles of the nearest bushfires on Black Saturday here in Vic. If you have the option to evacuate - grab your stash and go!

I was watching the news last night and those fires are too close. This morning it looks like most of it is under control. Let's hope it stays that way.
