Hi! I am at the library in a town 30 miles north of my home....The fire eventually had us evacuate Monday evening. Was that ever hard looking at the black smoke from the rearview mirror......
As of today, Friday, the 10th, fire is only 5% contained. Bad winds predicted AGAIN for tomorrow. There was talk of going home soon, but, it's not going to happen until Sunday/Monday??? The smoke here in this little has been real bad today.
I left with my friend, Sheila and her husband. They have a 30' RV with a slideout, so, it is working out good. We found a real nice RV park with all hookups. Her husband is working everyday on an outage at the power plant, so, it works out good for us to be together to get each other through this.
This like a NIGHMARE that just won't quit.
We dont' have TV * hopefully, DISH TV will be hooked up tonight *, and the radio updates don't seem to be real current. Maybe the lack of information is a good thing.....we are all on emotional overload.
Greer was hit hard, but, Eagar and Springerville have been spared for the most part.
It was hard today, seeing the Red Cross DIASTER RELIEF trucks! The RV Park *140 spaces * is over 1/2 full with evacuees. My friends son has stayed in town, he got contracted out to haul fuel out to the fire crews, so, he knows their home is protected, and, he gives up updates as he knows anything. She also has a niece working on it....the photos of this fire are something else....this is such an old, beautiful, tall-timbered forest, with so much fuel to burn that it just won't quit!
If you are interested, just google WALLOW FIRE.
Please keep praying for the firefighters and workers on this! And, please pray for everyone involved with this ordeal! We are just wore out from the worry and fear......
Thanks for your visit!
