“Too Close For Comfort”


Description from MoonBell: Our neighbor's shed (maybe house? don't know yet) caught on fire this evening, and it's so dry and windy here that it burned across the field within mere minutes. The fire department hadn't noticed it was at our house, so my husband and a few neighbors throwing burning grass and objects back away from the house is what saved it (and a neighbor with a construction business and backhoe). It did get my husband's motorcycle, and charred the underside of our vintage cars... but we're all safe, and we still have our house! There are burn marks literally a couple of feet from the house. My husband threw the kids and me in the car and had us leave as soon as it got too close to our property, but we're sleeping in our own house tonight. Also, the only reason we were still at home was because Squirt hadn't cleaned her room when we told her, so we were waiting on her to finish it before we left for the evening, and smelled smoke. As we were driving away, I was NOT thrilled with leaving my husband or beads behind!
