By the way, thanks for popping Bill Wausson's suspenders!!
You're welcome!

We will be in Timberon for Memorial Day, and the first order of business is to get those lots marked for clearing! Thanks again to everyone!
Glad to see that doing some clearing is at the top of your list.
I am trying to see if I can squeeze in a day or two in the near future and volunteer to run up and offer suggestions to anyone here on the board that is looking at making their homes a little more fire safe.

If you do check out our place.. you will be happy with what you see. I hope..
No trees by the house, per your suggestion. There will be many of us there around July 4th time frame.

I think mine is pretty much okay but not completely sure. The empty lots next to us need clearing for sure.

If any of you all living in Timberon now want to be on a committee to have a potluck for the firefighters on May 22, send me a message.
We're having a meeting tomorrow afternoon at 4 and I can give you more info.
Right now it's in the planning but I'll post more about it tomorrow evening but send me a message if you want to come to the meeting tomorrow.

Did anyone else feel this way or is it just something you get so used to after awhile, you stay calm? Maybe the people I saw felt the way I did but had a different way of handling it.
I've thought about this today and was wondering if I was too emotional which I tend to get over emotional at times.
Sounds like a silly question but I was just wondering if anyone else feels the way I do.
Cheryl, the way you were feeling is normal, girl! Been through it twice - once, from a cigarette thrown from a car that started a fire, and it came to about a quarter mile of our house... we wouldn't have had time to get anything out (including us - it almost cut off our exit route). The second time was when I was visiting a friend and a train sparked a grass fire, and it was very dry! Luckily, they had a tractor and were able to hook up a disc plow to it fast enough to make a fire brake around the house... I was shaking, and trying not to cry, and holding myself together at the same time I was calm - yeah, I know how you feel! LOL!!

On Sunday, May 17th at 1pm, there will be a presentation at the Timberon Fire Station by Susan Jenkins of the US Forest Service. She will discuss fire safety measures we can all take to protect our homes. She will go to a residence and critique, telling what is good, what is not good.
