Our Appaloosa mare "Gigi" has gone missing from her 20 acre pasture in Sandy, Or. The planes carrying water and fire retardent for the Estacada fire have been flying very low and may have spooked her. We (the owners) have searched neighboring pastures last night and early this morning.
Looks like some nice juicy rain clouds left over from Odile made it up this way.
We need the rain.May it poor heavy and long to quench the fires.
Taken last evening 9/15/14. The orange haze was almost spooky as bands of smoke wafted in front on the sunset. It made me sad because all I could think is that was once a beautiful forest and one of my favorite places on the planet.
