Uprooted Magnolia

I knew this day would eventually come.

I got the call yesterday evening that there was a fire at McCauley’s Ranch just across Palmer Canyon. I called Patrick off the meadow he was baling to let him know they were in need of some serious help. While I waited for him to come in,  I went and stared at his firefighting gear. I’ve always known it was there but I had hoped I would never see him in it.  I knew this day would eventually come. And I know it’s not the first and certainly won’t be the last.

But I must admit he does look mighty handsome in that fire retardant suit. That, however, did not help the ache in my chest.

Back home, safe and sound.

He was out there all night long until a team of 13  that travels to help towns on fire arrived to relieve them. When he got home his morning, he said it seems well contained. Let’s hope it stays that way.
