Not Over Yet
In between checking yubanet and playing with features on the phone, I didn't get much done the rest of the day. Too hot to do anything, anyhow (90 degrees at 9:00). Come sundown, I put my kids to bed and then went to Cam's. Cricket and Shadow were waiting in the near-dark up by the house, impatiently waiting for their nighty-night treats, and followed me down to the barn. Cleverly remembering to take my lighted hard hat, I was able to count the chickens in their two stalls and shut them in. All present and accounted for. Cam had told me to go down late because the eight pullets, like all little kids, were reluctant to go to bed while it was still light.
Deb had also been playing "new phone," and sent me a message just before I went to bed about emojis. I'd never heard of such things (it's a brave new world out there!). She promised to tell me about them today. Linda had told me earlier about the voice-activated texting aid. Man, this is a steep learning curve I'm on.
This morning the visible smoke is not as high, but has definitely spread much farther to the northeast. Pretty obvious fire season is not over yet.
