  1. It says we ALL are. Computers are stupid. From what I have had a chance to read, I am guessing, our status should go up as we post. I will read more on it tomorrow… after I get more teeth pulled…. Need to do “quiet” work… the perfect opportunity has presented itself.
  2. I did our update. Some things are different. I will be checking to see what’s going on.
  3. The fire located lower left, Pinacle Fire, was reported yesterday, & is now around 5,000 acres.
  4. They said the Telegraph Fire is 88,500+ acres and 76% contained… however, this is what the sky looked like at 8:00am 10:00 am 11:00 am Not looking good, what-so-ever!
  5. I read, Gates & Fauci, funded the initial research, & had it released, to stop Trumps “Make America Great” campaign, starting in late 2019. Nothing better then a quarantining to shut down the whole country. Don’t have the links… but, now, it really doesn’t matter. We have a governing caucus that seems, IMHO, to be destroying our country. No oil production left, no coal, we gotta buy it now from foreign countries. I paid $3.80/gal. to fill up on my trip this month.
  6. Home from TX. DH isn’t feeling well. Stopped by Twilight’s house for a few. Storm was a good boy! Nasty air. Dusty, smoky and windy, until I passed TX Canyon, headwinds the whole trip. Wish I took a pic, the mountains looked like a huge smoldering fire pit. Sigh. DH & MIL aren’t feeling well, so I’m will be focusing specifically on them. Forgive me if I am a bit quiet.
  7. Telegraph Fire is almost 86,000 acres today.

    Carrots

    Thank you, Dee! I’ve often wondered whether it was just me, lol. I’ve always put any bag of carrots in the crisper bin in the frig, but, I will blow into the bag, then, twist the top. Store bought will last almost a year, as long as I open the bag, use one or two, blow into the bag & re-twist the top. They will grow roots and greens. Home grown…. (embarrassing)… have lasted 2-3 years. They get pushed to the back & I forget they are in there. Sometimes I think I am loosing my memory… at my age…probably.
  9. I certainly hope & pray the highway acts as a fire block. As long as the wind dies down and the fires don’t backtrack. It is truly a deep sadness that all our local wilderness forests are burning. Yeah, it probably needed it. Native Indians used to do controlled burns, years ago, before Fed. land management took over. Plus, as DH & I were talking, AZ is the only place on earth, our Saguaro species can live naturally. Imagine how many are gone.
  10. I’m very grateful your family is safe, May they stay that way. Truly sad part, they evac’ed Superior & Top of the World to the evac center in Globe, for the Telegraph Fire. There isn’t a route out of Globe with the Mescal Fire encroaching. We are also going into an excessive heat warning, unseasonably high temps over 110°. Today, the Telegraph is 76,260 acres & Mescal is over 70,000 acres. There’s another big one in the Gila National forest, in NM, the Johnson Fire, 45,500 acres. Then, just for the info….. yeah, there’s a few fires burning…..CA looks bad too.
  11. Telegraph Fire is over 71,700 acres. Mescal is almost 66,000 acres.
  12. Telegraph Fire is over 56,000 acres, evacuations for the town of Miami, (SW corner of Globe).
  13. This is what it looked like yesterday
  14. The Telegraph Fire is on the left, now over 41,000 acres. They PTB are recommending people west of Globe to evacuate. The Mescal Fire on the right, is almost 50,000 acres.
  15. The Telegraph Fire is on the left, the Mescal Fire on the right, is almost 26,000 acres already.
  16. The winds yesterday were horrible, more wind today.
  17. Windy, gusty winds are not helping, it’s up to 7,000 acres…closing highways…. As a crow flies, it’s probably less than 20 miles from us.
  18. Two fires within 50 miles from us. 3,500, the closest & 8,000 acres already. they get them under control. Planes are still flying….
  19. Mt_Rider, the dog transporter has MS. Mentioned horse riding to him, and he said he’s heard it helps. He’s young enough he’s been doing medicine trials, said the stuff they have him on now works rather well…but the cost is over $10 g a year.. but the research people are paying for it right now. Sigh. Been preparing to go to TX next week, a week early, because I have a dental appointment the following week. Sigh. But this appointment should, God willing, eliminate all the trouble I have been having. Amen! God willing, on the way home, I will get to visit with Twilight. I’m really excited to see her again. I miss her being here. It is what it is. Puppies got to play in the water today. Over 100°for the last couple of weeks. We have a fire in the mountains, we can see the smoke plumes from here. We’ve been watching fire planes going over for a couple of days. It’s already over 3,000 acres. Sigh. Time to go, we have a customer coming in… need to do paperwork.
  20. Usually, with the right search, you can find almost any camera feed online. DH has been doing it for years.
  21. Whew! Our house is back to quiet normal. Sunday, we had company. Dog transport. He went from Austin, TX, picked up 2 dogs in KY. Drove to the northwest border of WA, had the dog checked at a vet, to get papers to travel to her new home in Canada. Then, he headed toward us. Griffin, a full bread German Shepherd, looks a lot like Storm, a little less brown in color. K came over about an hour before the transport got here. I was busy, preparing to barbecue them their meal. Salad, steak, corn on the cob and Texas toast. The dogs got along very well. But, Storm had issues with the transporter. Sigh. Griffin & K seemed like they fell in love, at first sight. Lol. His Daughter is elated with her birthday present. K understands, it’s his dog, kids usually don’t take responsibility seriously. But, with a 9 yo, 5 yo, and a 2 yo, that puppy is going to be spoilt. Lol
  22. We had to deal with black fungus, when we first bought our house. Nasty, nasty stuff.. but we got it taken care of.
  23. My last hen died, before MIL went home. We didn’t tell her because, while she was here, 3 of her friends passed. Since I’ve been home, I cleaned the upper area of the coop, put in a plastic floor, and am storing my gardening & canning supplies in it. Will clean the ground level, level it and place tiles down, so I can use it as a tool shed for all my gardening rakes, shovels, pots, etc. That hen run is an excellent idea. Not going to get any more chicks for a while. I’ve got some important stuff I need to take care of before dealing with more chickens. However, I will definitely keep it in mind if I decide to get more.. Thanks Jeepers!
