 As I write this the air is heavy with smoke ashes falling onto the vehicles and just making it hard to see and breathe.   Well even after some of florida got some rain last week it looks like there will be no backyard bbq's and fireworks.  The fire season is off to a strong start, here is a drought index map for florida counties.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

There have been some evacuations nothing real major yet, but with the high winds anything can happen.  Here is a link to a local newspaper.  http://www.gainesville.com/apps/pbcs.dll/gallery?Avis=GS&Dato=20070508&Kategori=NEWS&Lopenr=508001&Ref=PH

Yeah with the drought levels down here we have had a couple of fires in Broward county. Nothing like driving through smoke on the Interstate at noon.

Well at least I have marshmellows. I will put a few on the end of a stick.

There has ben TV coverage of this and the California fires in Australia.

All I can say is make sure your family has a fire plan. Learn it and practice it.

If you plan to leave, leave early.

Do not stay and fight unless you know what you are doing. It is very easy to lose your life in a few minutes.

Houses can rise from the ashes, loved ones cannot.

Hope all goes well, were thinking of you.
