Don't have much time!!

Just thought I would say Hi. We had a fire start on my district this afternoon. It is over 1,000 acres and growing. It is sorta going towards where I live, but I think my house will be OK. Gotta go. Hope this will end soon. Take care, SC.

I got off the clock this morning at 4:30 am. I slept for about 3 hours. Here is a website where you can find some info about the fire.
http://www.fs.fed.us/fire/incidents/forest/?id=14 Click on the link that says Harding Fire.

Thanks for all your concerns. everyone. I need to get more sleep.

Bye, SC
