FIRE yep that behind the canyon. Panic a bit call Hubby. What fire he says…really look he sees it over the hill says come home. So I head that way slowly as you notice the car in front of me.
at this point i have no idea how close it is.

now the road to home is two lane and as I approach the I-15 it is closed. Vegas must have been pissed.

now what happens.. everyone thinks there is short cut up our road. Ha dead end people unless you are a mtn goat. Semi go up and turn around in the mean time my food is getting yucky.

after a few of those words from above I finally make it home. can not let the beer get warm it's a fire event. The best part of living in Mayberry is everyone gathers around to share misinformation. Ha lucky for us the wind blew the other direction and we were spared this time.

So we grabbed our lawn chairs a piece of shade and drank a few beers and wine. Scary but a nice way to get thru the stress as our little town was not spared before. Many lost homes. Fire makes us nervous up here in Mayberry. I wish I took pics of the street party bummer.

    • Thank you for visiting it was so scary when you have no idea how close it is. This community we call mayberry went thru a horrible fire called the old fire. Many lost houses but most stayed. Our fired dept was awesome. What made your heart jump.
