A brush fire was growing last Wednesday and folks living on the southern edge of town were starting to pack things as they cleared the brush around their homes and made other preparations to protect their homes.
Thursday morning we could smell the smoke in midtown Anchorage. But it also rained some. It rained again on Friday and Saturday. But there wasn't a lot of rain. Enough to give fire fighters the edge. Today it rained on and off all day, some of the time hard.
And I tried to catch some of that hard rain with my camera. Not very well. Mostly after it hit the table on the deck. But here's the evidence and one day I hope to show that I can look back with satisfaction when I've learned to do this better. It gets a little sharper if you click on it.
