[ somethins burnin ]

HAPPY MONDAY everyone! To all of my Canuck friends, Happy Victoria Day - (aka May 24) long weekend!

Nothing too exciting going on here in Dubai but it sounds like my hometown in Northern Ontario is surrounded by forest fires right now. This pic was taken about 4 km from my parents' home...


So far the town has not been evacuated - they are still trying to bring the fire under control. The entire city of Timmins is surrounded by forest fires on all outer highways so it looks like many family summer cottages are at risk as well.

Here's hoping for some rain! And that everyone's homes are safe.

update:
I appears that the closest fire has been tackled and there will be no need for my parents to evacuate (thank goodness!). As for the other fires, no updates so far.

Sending prayers that all

Yikes I hope they got the rain we had early today! It's been too hot too early in these parts! I hope your parents continue to be out of danger.

Oh my goodness! I hope everything is ok. We always have a big risk for fires where we live too, especially the past couple years because it has been so dry. I hope they are able to get the fires under control soon.
