Why I got home late on Saturday

Post by gbste on Mon Apr 11, 2011 12:44 pm

Las Animas is about 30 miles west of Lamar. I had to stay there for an hour and a half when I was coming home from the pet fair because the highway east of Las Animas was closed due to the fire.

I heard about that fire! I'm glad you're okay, did they manage to put it out yet?

Glad you are OK. There is a major wildfire in west Texas.

I was pretty lucky on Saturday. My partner for the fair and her husband are former highway patrol officers, so they knew just whom to call to find out about the closed highway. They live just outside Las Animas on a beautiful little farm, so I had a nice place to wait for the fire to move on. We had the 2 chihuahua pups, plus a pom pup still with us, and they came into the kitchen with us and had a lot of fun tearing around in the kitchen. When the highway opened, we loaded up the pups and I drove on home. The fire was still burning, but had moved about a mile away from the highway. I could see lots of embers burning in the dark. The fire burned clear to Hasty, a tiny town by John Martin Reservoir, and destroyed some structures there. It was still burning Monday, and some people out in the country had to be evacuated. I think it's out now, as the wind has finally died down.

I'm glad you had a place to wait it out and nobody got hurt.
