Last Sunday night, I was fixing dinner and we all heard something outside. Imagine our surprise to see a heavy rainstorm. I guess we've been living in a drought area for too long. The big kids went outside to dance in the rain a bit. A little later I walked back out and smelled something funny. There was a palm tree on fire right across the street from our TLF (temporary lodging facility). The heavy rain kept the fire from spreading, and it appears as though the nearby building escaped without any damage.
I'm linking this post with others in the Think Back Thursday meme at Debbie's Digest, and I'd love for you to join me.
