Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

View out our living room window.

Both of these views are from the back side of the mountain.

View from the highway heading to the east from town.

This little fire has been burning about 20 hours now and lots of people are nervous about it burning this close to their homes. It is a little nerve wracking but the fuel type is such that the fire will burn through it and be out because there isn't much there. On the other hand it burns very rapidly when it is burning. The winds blow it all over the place and it just follows along. The crews have made good progress anD all the fire appears to be on the backside of the mountain this morning.
