Park Day 2.0
Darn, Park Day 2.0 is here already and we didn’t get a chance to get to the park AGAIN!! Last week, I sprained my ankle, so mom said I had to REST – I hate that.
This week, there was a BRUSH FIRE near our park and we couldn’t go! But here’s some pictures of the fire taken from our house. Our park is right at the bottom of that hill where you see the smoke.
And here’s some pics from the newspaper:
Kind of scary – we are just sitting in the house, looking out the window. You can see our Fire Alert Sticker in the window. Mom got those to tell the fireman that there are pets in the house in case she’s not home.
The fire, called the Springs Fire started in Camarillo, CA near the 101 highway. The Santa Ana winds which blow east to west picked up and the temperature soared and the winds really kicked in – an easy recipe for these types of fires getting out of control. It started at 7am this morning and by 2pm it was already over 6,500 acres and on its way across the Santa Monica mountains on it’s way to the ocean. Luckily we are in the opposite direction, so are in no danger.
Next week, I’m going to make mom take me earlier in the week rather than wait till the last minute!
We’re happy to be a part of Park Day 2.0 even though we didn’t get to the park. We have ALL MONTH to enter the very cool Bingo contest they are sponsoring – check it out on their Blogs. Thanks Finn & Gizmo, our Park Day 2.0 hosts.
