Grass fires on the highway  by louannwarren

Grass fires on the highway

Coming home from visiting Cadence at her university we drove through blinding smoke two different times. There was a lot of traffic, we had to just go slow and get through it. In those rural areas they only have small volunteer departments who just do the best they can. With all our dry weather and high winds, I’m sure this is a daily problem.
Wow!!

I watched a documentary the other evening all about that terrible fire in Paradise...what a terrible time that was...so scary & here is another incidence.....hope you get rain soon so the threat dies away.

Oh dear how scary. We are coming into summer and we have had a few bushfires already. I guess we are in for a hot smoky summer.
October 24th, 2019  
Wow now that is very scary Lou Ann but still very well captured:)

@photographycrazy @mittens @ludwigsdiana @pistache @beryl @jacqbb @mave @koalagardens @Weezilou @gijsje @happypat @onewing @pcoulson thank you all. Fire is something that we all have to respect and often times a careless toss of a lit cigarette out of a car window can start a blaze in an instant. We suspected this on the two fires we saw, because there was no lightning or storm clouds, it was a perfectly clear day.

A scary experience!

Well captured, but glad you made it through.

good composition and use of colour

I'm sure it's as dangerous as it appears. I really don't understand why so many people throw things out of the car window- especially when it produces fires like this. I do hope it's able to be controlled soon.

Scary isn't it & the fire fighters are so brave.....
October 24th, 2019  
That would not be fun to drive in
October 24th, 2019

@carole_sandford @danette @mgmurray @olivetreeann @happysnaps @bkbinthecity @lynnz @joansmor thank you for your wonderful comments and faves this is on the TP and PP this morning, thank you! As luck would have it, this area had received several inches of rain in the last 24 hours. So thankful for the moisture, no more grass fires at least for a while.
