My House is Untouched By Fire

The fire was much closer than I like, the next hill over. It could have climbed our hill, but firemen stopped it.
And that house in photo I think is okay, though probably got a lot of smoke even if windows closed.

After the scary post yesterday afternoon I wanted everyone who reads blog to know that the wonderful firemen (bomberos) put the fire out with rakes, hoes, machetes and shovels (had no water).

I came back after dark and all was okay last night. Most of the smoke was blown away by the high winds but still no internet, thus delay in report until this morning (Tuesday). Then internet was out again before I could add the above photo until afternoon. Both the electric company and the cable company have had several trucks out here all day. Right now all is good

This is the bad part of the “Dry Season” that the tourists like so much – fires! Rainy Season starts in May and some of us call it the “Green Season” which to me is prettier and more enjoyable!  And I don’t have to water the gardens!  🙂

Now 4 cropped, improved cell phone photos from yesterday that show fire better than shots posted yesterday:

Firemen Were on it Pretty Fast, But Had No Water 
They used rakes, hoes, machetes and shovels to fight fire.
