We’ve had a touch of rain over the last couple days and Friday was mostly smoke free. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Joe and Tammy’s Friday night–it was a beautiful evening to sit on their new deck and watch the sunset.
Today there was a garage sale in town we wanted to attend held by a quilting friend of mine–there were some “organizing” items which would have worked in the truck camper but I was too late–oh, well–I did pick up an extra yoga mat and the Cowboy found a bucket of plumbing parts. We went out to breakfast then decided on the spur of the moment to head to Billings to purchase new flooring for the toyhauler. Emmi stayed with Nat while we were gone.
As we were visiting with Nat after we returned from Billings, I received a notification on my phone–seems there was a fire up the Boulder–
The fire is located on the West Boulder/Mendenhall Creek area (which has been evacuated) and is about four miles from us as the crow flies. The fire is approximately 500-700 acres and 0% contained. The smoke rolled into our valley as we watched–the smoke was so heavy my clothes smelled of smoke when we came in the house. The Cowboy caught these photos of one of the air tankers helping to fight the fire–
We will see what Sunday brings–
Taken from our hay field at about 4pm this afternoon–the smoke got much, much worse after this photos was taken.
