    Seeing as our house burned down in a forest fire this summer...I prefer blizzards. It's easier to control snow than fire.

    No contest...SNOW (and I am a snow-hater to the core).

    Ugh, fires must suck. The bad air combined with the threat of never knowing when one might churn up would drive me to drink. At least with a snowstorm, you know it's coming and it's gone and done a day later. At worst the barn door is frozen shut and power is out. I feel for you guys over there dealing with that.

    Today we have a VERY sever fire warning. Fire services have put out warning to horse owners where to evacuate to. We thankfully have fire trucks on the property. We've also got big bins full of water in the stables. Horses have been put out still. The owner has sent out messages to all of us saying his keeping watch all day. There has been fires located a few hours away from us. The dam has enough water in it for the horses to stand in, thankfully. Please keep us in your thoughts.

    Don't forget about smoke inhalation. A lot of people here lost their livestock to that even if their property didn't burn.

    Good luck. I'll think of you guys when I'm out freezing my butt off tomorrow morning. I guess perspective is a good thing after all.

    Seven months of winter sucks, but being evacuated sucks even more. One of these scariest moments I've ever had.
