Sometimes, help comes when you need it.
Or more likely, when you need help,
you knows it when you sees it.

Our species typically expects it to fall out of the sky.
One way or the other, it often does.

We were already pretty sure that slurry bombers are heros.

Now we think they're miracle workers.

This rain didn't stop the fire, but I'm sure it slowed it down.
It washed the air and gave everyone a break.
It felt so good.

so, a fire was averted? this makes me happy--and I love rain on a deck

A few splats of rain on the deck made me happy, too.
But sad to say, this post was the result of the giddy relief provided by 45 minutes of rain, totaling less than a quarter inch. The reality is that 7000 acres have burned so far, 140 homes have been destroyed, 3000 people have been displaced, the weather forecast is for hot, dry wind for the next week, and 98% of the fire is still burning out of control.
