Yesterday a very fast moving fire started in the White Mountains in the Show Low, Pinetop/Lakeside area and was only 9 miles from those towns. Still have no idea how this was started. It is already at 8,000'. Seems the Cedar Creek Fire has been held back and has not crossed the fire line made by the fire crews, the wind also was less intense than they thought it might be. Still keeping pre evacuations in place. Bless those Fire Fighters and all other crews working this fire there are many. They work long hours in extreme heat. I have met a few during and after the Wallo Fire. Please pray for their safety. Ft. Apache under pre evacuation most of the fire is on White Mountain Apache land. They have a huge fire crew out there also.
Went to Walmart today and believe me it was forced. I tried to talk myself out of it hard. But I needed things I knew they didn't have at the little store. Besides it got me some exercise walking all over the store. Needed white yarn and of course they had a really pretty color so I had to buy 2 skeins for a hat and scarf. Have plenty to crocheting to do. I'm sure I will switch to smaller things as it gets hotter as the blanket I am working on now is getting pretty heavy. We still will have 2 more days of cooler weather like 102 then Sunday the heat will hit hard. I am so ready for this I think. Just hate sitting with all the blinds closed but it sure helps.
Good Night All
