In the fifth year of record breaking drought, fire danger is magnified. As always, we have the hot dry summers. Add the forrest fires and we have destruction with mourning. Please pray for protection and strength for the firefighters, homeowners, livestock, businesses, and the losses endured by many for years to come.
In the many years I was married to a “firefighter,” I heard stories of dangerous events, especially during forrest fire fighting. Wind, weather and combustibles played a part in the danger. I heard them speak of how large forrest fires create their own weather with wind changes.
The fires even affect others from a long distance away. The smoke creating breathing difficulties, especially for the vulnerable.
