Wild Fire Season?

Thompson Ridge Fire; May 2013
New Mexico has truly been my season of firsts so far. On Friday, the Thompson Ridge Fire sparked and has since grown to over 2,000 acres, uncontrolled. My first forest fire to be present for! (Please note the sarcasm there.) I panicked a little bit at first, but Josh has been through several of them and knows the drill.

It's weird how you learn to live with things growing up, then add more and more things to your repertoire as you get older. In Louisiana in elementary school, one of the first things we learned how to do was track hurricanes and what the different characteristics that storms have mean. Now I get to learn how fires behave!
