Out Of the Woods

Forgive the pun… The rain has done it! The fire isn’t out by any means, but at least the fire fighters have deemed the risk lessened enough that all our evacuees were able to return home yesterday. They’re still on alert but the danger seems to have passed. Great news for us, and although we’ll still be keeping an eye on it, I can enjoy the rest of my mini-break here on the coast without worrying. The way it’s raining down here this morning, hopefully there is more rain on the way at home. Regardless of the fire, we really need it, after a four month drought. I guess fall is here!
