pray for rain!

Those readers who believe in the power of prayer, please mention NE Oklahoma. We are in bad need of rain. Our landscape is beginning to resemble southern California.
We've responded four times in the last three days to the same wildland fire. If I've been unattentive to this blog, this is the reason why. I was out to midnight last night fighting this fire and now we're at it again today. The two trucks are perched at the edge of a ridge ready to defend houses from an advancing flame. I took the other photo on the way. You can see the fire truck behind us through the sideview mirror.

Today the Associated Press- US News
had an audio photo gallery entitled, "Oklahoma Drought Drying up Life." They interviewed some farmers saying that they don't know if they will be able to make it another year. We had a drought a few years ago that left our state looking like yours does now. I hope you get rain soon.
