Ranch Fire Again

We had another ranch fire this weekend. My mom called us as we were leaving a birthday party in New Braunfels to tell us we had a fire on the ranch. We rushed home, but by the time we got there, the firemen had it under control.
Luckily, this fire was much smaller than the last one we had almost three years ago. We are in a drought and had really strong winds on Saturday. Five different fire departments arrived and fought the blaze.
Sunday morning as we fished down at the pond, our ranch hand pulled up to tell us the fire had started burning again. We had a few minutes of worry, but the fire department came out again and put it out again. Davis was the most worried, but after he ran home as fast as he could and grabbed his lovie and Sam's baby, he seemed to calm down.
Pray for us to get some rain okay? We can't be having fires like this all the time. It's hard on the cows, the nerves and my babies.
