It took me three hours to get home from up the mountain, probably only about 30 miles. I may have been able to walk faster. It was good seeing some folks being able to get back to their houses.

And, I am done with campfires for the rest of the summer.

Oh dear. Long ordeal, PF! Hopefully the hunky firefighters made the job a bit easier! Hope you can get some rest, bless you!

Awwww, I agree with Patron!

Wow a lot of news just today in this thread. PF, you deserve a good rest and a pat on the back! Pac, I can smell that meat from here. Addie, I'm still praying for your daughter, and wish her well. And, big hugs for Kylie! I hope your knee is better soon.

Glad you got home safely. When you get back to work, give Patron a big hug from me. That is adorable.

PF, is that work you did and cook for all the firefighters strictly volunteer? Who paid for the food? That is some effort on your part. I am certain that it is a good feeling to see folks able to return to their home and find it still standing. Were you close enough to be inhaling some of the smoke? I always tell myself when I see any fire, that in that smoke prayers are going up with it.

Absolutely voluntary, the food is provided by the Forestry Service and donations from local folks. I took a week's vacation, so I guess this is what I did on my summer vacation.

The smoke is everywhere, even in town, so I will still be smelling campfires until the fires are gone. I have one heck of a headache from the smoke and my lungs just hurt. But, I'm fine and did my good deed for the week.
