Fire season

 It's that time of year.  We have winds, very low humidity, and wildfires.  To the east is the Tres Lagunas Fire (above) north of Pecos in the Sangre de Cristos(above).  It grew from 500 acres to 1,000 acres over night last night.  To the west of us is the Thompson Fire in the Jemez Mountains (below).  It started today between Jemez Springs and the Caldera.  We have plumes on both sides of us.  Currently the smoke is south of us, but we'll see what happens over night.

We have a friend fighting the fire in the Pecos Wilderness, and know many firefighters in the Jemez.  Please pray for God's protection and safety on them.  And an end to this drought would be awfully nice!
