Earth, Wind, and Fire

I smelled the smoke last night before going to bed and decided to get a couple of flashlights out in case we have a blackout. Decided to start writing early today for the same reason. From past experience we know the drill here pretty well and plan to pack a few things in case we get the call the evacuate later. Really glad we don’t have any pets to worry about. My son has to pack up his cat along with his family. Right now the fires nearest to us are in the North San Fernando Valley and the winds are not blowing. If the winds pick up the fire could be heading toward us. I thought we might get through this year without wildfires.  We just had a tree cut back from our roof in back and I am glad we did that. I hope the fire is chased to ground before it takes flight.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday, #SOCS,  is hosted by Linda G Hill. The prompt word for today is ‘ground,’ used as a noun or verb and in any tense.
