it doesn't look too threatening. Did you get rain? I love your view, and your space out there - beautiful.

Daisy and Co., we didn't get rain, darn it! But maybe today! Francesca, we love our backyard and the view (even with a couple of electrical towers in the mix.) Unfortunately, we're in what is now called the "stupid zone" where people have built on the edge of open spaces that can easily have huge fires like the one we had in 2003 that burned the mountains you see in the distance and burned up to the backyard of housese two doors down from us where firemen were waiting and put it out. The avocado grove on the other side of the canyon from us didn't burn, and neither did the canyon itself, thank goodness. But, I suppose that just means it is there waiting to burn the next time! And there will be a next time. Fire has taken the same path as the 2003 fire a couple of times in my lifetime, several times since records have been kept and scientists believe many, many times in the distant past. With something good always come something bad -- or wait..is that supposed to be the other way around?? (smile)
