Up Date

I went out early this morning to spray weeds, not many at all and with this heat and the spray they will die fast. Watered what is left of my porch plants and will have to do that every morning to insure  they make it through this nasty heat.

Then back into the house and only quick outs for Fred. Finished closing up the blinds and did some things around the house.

Working on some crochet projects keeps my mind off being stuck inside. Cooked up some Quinoa(sp)? and placed it in 1/2 cup containers and used some for a great salad I had for dinner tonight.

The Cedar Fire is not contained but it has been kept behind the fire breaks that have been set up by the hot shot crews. There are 600 firefighters on the lines. 9,652 acres have burned which is about 8.3 miles  south of Pinetop/Lakeside, and 11.4 miles from Show Low.
Good progress was made today. Forestdale (which I incorrectly named yesterday) was evacuated and still are not allowed back in. Pre evac for Pinetop/Lakeside and Show Low are still in place.
Pretty much everything depends on the weather and winds.

Good Night All


  1. Definitely a struggle to keep plants alive on the patio. Today we will be around 102...then hotter tomorrow. I am with you about Walmart, I avoid them until I have to go other wise it is driving to Flagstaff or Prescott. Not what I want to do in the heat. Hope the fires get put out fast and there is no loss of life. Take care.

  2. Gonna be creeping close to 100 even up in these parts. Sounds like there making really good progress on the fire. Now just praying the monsoons start up very soon.

  4. Hi JMD,

    My biggest problem is I spend to much money in Walmart. But at least I get some exercise. It was 110 on porch this is crazy.

    Hi Ryan,

    I saw that heat up there. But yes they are making progress which is remarkable. I feel so bad for those guys in this awful heat and then the added heat from the fire. Yes praying fo rthe monsoons to get under way. Thanks for the update too
