Fires outta control

So I guess my parents don't want me to worry about the fires in NM and CO, but I just found out that there was another fire that sprang up in Bloomfield, just 5 miles from my parents house. It took out over 5 houses, and over 10,000 acres of farmland. It reached to the fenceline of my friends backyard.

Now they posted this on FB

Huge fire just north of the state line on the way to Durango- stopping traffic at the line! This will spread resources even further from the Mancos fire!

So please can we get some prayers for the men and women involved in trying to control these fires and somebody please do a rain dance!

just got off the phone with my mom and she told me there are at least 7 different fires going on right now! This is insane! I can't believe how dry it is this year.
My dads doing 24 hour soaks on our field just to keep it moist but its getting drier every day....not good for our hay production.

I just hope diane is okay...theyre up in one of the driest parts near durango....jeez now I really wish I was back home with my family. I know me and my dad would both be up their with the volunteers now.

That's how it is in CA as well. Lots of fires popping up. It's way too dry and hot we need rain!
