We need rain sooooo bad.

Charlie and I are going to a meeting at the fire dept. this evening. He's been asked to join and I'm going along because maybe I'll join and do something to.
I found out yesterday through an email someone sent me that there are 51 people here in the Timberon Fire Dept. and not all are firefighters.
I don't know how many people they had but I assumed that people that were volunteers fought fires. I didn't realize there is so much more to it and behind the scenes people until it was pointed out to me. Maybe I'll be a behind the scenes person as fighting fires may freak me out but then again, maybe it will be a good experience.
I'll find out and then I'll think about it.

Song,

It is always good to volunteer in the local community in one way another. Maybe you will find your niche at the fire department. You can never have too many volunteers to fight fires. It can be a long exhausting process, but I bet you know that better than I do. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Yes pray for rain!!!!

78 MPH? Ouch. And lots of trees down means lots of power lines down also, as you noted.

I covered up my tomatoes again this afternoon. At least it only got up to 89 today.

I'm hoping to get the red bells and NM green chile (Parkers/Big Jims) out sometime this week.

I bought some more shade fabric. They'll probably have to be covered up for awhile, too.

I'll send you 15 degrees in exchange for some of the rain!

I wish you could, too, Jane...I just bought some more shade fabric for everything else I hope to get out this week sometime.

Sis is calling it my "truck farm."

Yep lots of powerlines down. last night around 40K people around Central and Southern Indiana were out of power. I think almost all of power has been restored by now. Big tall tree fell down and completely flattened a Gazebo at one of the local parks. It made 67 today.

In this case since we have to much rain( got 3.1 inches last night-this morning) I will take you up on on that deal..... Only for 2 days though!
