TXT:: Had another one of those dire emergency days today. Around noontime, I heard the fire alarms ring out, and I went out to see what the excitement was all about, and saw a smoke bellowing from our property down the hill. A grass fire ignited along the freeway and the flames were working their way towards our redwood trees along the property. The local fire department and the CDF (California Department of Forestry) were already working on one side of the fire, while a few people helped me out with some water hoses to protect the tree line. Fortunately the grass was still green, and the weather wasn’t too warm, so the fire didn’t spread too quickly, and the fire didn’t damage anything.
