I am not ready for it to be Monday already. This hot weather stinks. Another week coming up in the high 90's. Every. Single. Day. I've lost track of how long we've had these temps - at least a month now. The wild fire just keeps getting worse and they just keep bringing more people in to work on it. I think they are over 400 now. DH watched the video of the community meeting they had last night about the fire. That sheriff is such a pompous ass. I can't see how anyone can stand him. Honestly, at this point I would not be surprised if it gets the 2 miles farther and across the river to our property. They as much said so in the meeting video. Just this afternoon it has increased quite a bit of area. You can see a huge cloud of smoke from town now.
Yesterday we headed out about 8am for a long drive and went and picked up our sets of house and shop plans from the guy who did them up for us. We met him at a car show he was participating in, so we got to chat with him, look at some nice cars and get our plans. On the way home we stopped in the city to go to Target for some groceries and such and got some lunch. Then we stopped at our friends house for about an hour.
This morning our friends met us out at our property because friend wanted to see the site work done and DH wanted his opinion on a couple of things. DH also took his long wheel tape measure and carefully walked down the bank from the top edge of our property to the river edge. He's just been curious all along exactly just how far down it is! 185 ft. Yep we are high bank. LOL That's ok, no chance of ever flooding. We also found out that lot 7 (we are lot 3) finally sold. I think that guy has been trying to sell it for like 2 years. It was the first lot we looked at (it's 3 acres, the rest are 2) but it's a wierd pie shaped lot and the builder said it's really only about 1/2 acre of usable/build-able area, plus from that little 1/2 acre it was set back far enough you couldn't see the river. Apparently a young couple bought it, but have no idea if they are planning to build soon or what.
