Just before it got dark I looked out again, even more smoke and some flames.Surely someone had called it in.
About 8:15 I looked out again, Oh my gosh. So I called 911 - which is always an interesting experience. We do no live in Las Vegas and we do not live in Henderson, but we liver just on Henderson's border. So any emergency call goes to Henderson. When they find out where we live the call has to be transferred to Clark County emergency. Finally got the dispatcher - had a hard time explaining where exactly the fire was as it was quite a ways from us. So our address was no help. I finally remembered there was a road over in the area of the fire and that the water reclamation plant was near there too. So gave her that information. Seems like around 7:00 someone had called in a fire in that area...and thank you for calling.
Does it look to you like any equipment is there trying to put it out...
The next day I was walking around our rock yard admiring all the pretty spring flowers that are blooming. No idea what most of them are called, but they are pretty.
This one I know It is a Palo Verde tree and it is loaded with flowers.
One of the Lantanas
An Oleander. Someone had thrown it out a couple of years ago and Bill picked it up brought it home and planted it. Going fine now.
I have several of the rocks out front piled up into Cairns. No reason just fun.
One of our cactus out front is trying to bloom, but I don't think the flower ever opens more than this. More of a bud then a flower.
And this is our side yard where the "front" door is. Lots of blooms out here now. Soon the plants will cover all the wonderful rocks.
And this is me yesterday. Got really sick Monday evening and still wasn't feeling very well yesterday. Bill says he took the picture because it is so unusual to see me bundled up in a blanket. I was freezing. Better by evening and doing pretty good so far today. Just a stomach thing of some sorts.
This mornings sunrise.
A lovely start to the day.
