My state is literally on fire. New ones are popping up almost every day, sometimes several a day. As of right now, New Mexico is the driest it's been in something like 116 years and it is the driest state in the country. The biggest fire in the state's history is burning and still growing about an hour and a half away from where I live. So far there haven't been any fires nearer to us than that- I'm lucky enough to live in one of the greenest places in my state- but it's still scary. The pictures above are of the fires we saw on our way home from seeing my Grandma. My dad and I saw three fires in seven hours- two of which had just started. I'm getting too used to bloody sunsets and smoke filled skies.
Yesterday and the day before it rained. I guess it didn't even really rain. It sprinkled a bit. But at this point, we need anything we can get. And it could be a sign that the monsoon season isn't too far away. Either way, it was beautiful while it lasted.
These songs really fit the way I've been feeling.
