And all is Okay in our part of the world...

And the choir says, AMEN!

"The Diamond Complex, which includes three lightning-caused fires (Little Fork, Maverick and Mill), is 98% contained. The Little Fork fire is 34,550 acres and is 98% contained; the Maverick fire is 11,120 acres and 100% contained; and the Mill fire is 6,950 and 100% contained. Fire crews will continue to mop-up, patrol and rehabilitate fire areas. Incident Commander Tom Heintz would like to thank the people and communities of Ashland, Otter and all areas impacted by the Diamond Complex fires. "My Team and I received incredible support, assistance and hospitality during the incident," IC Heintz stated. "In a time of great stress and concern for your community and neighbors, you remained open to helping our Team achieve success of full suppression of the Little Fork, Maverick and Mill fires. Thank you." ~ from the InciWeb site  9/1/2011

AND Thank you for your prayers, and well you can see, the land needs to heal a bit - but next year there is going to be really green grass on those areas that burned, and the Ponderosa Pine seedlings will be popping up all over. No one was hurt on this fire except for a minor bee sting, and only a few outbuildings  burned in the little fork fire...

we were all spared.
