A Gift Of A Tree - From Alex's Cousin And Aunt
Song: Michael Meets Mozart
Group: The Piano Guys
Alex received this card notifying him of a tree being planted
in his honor...as gifted to him from his Aunt Linda and his Cousin Christopher.
A picture from last year of his Aunt Linda and his Grandmother when they visited.
A picture from a few months ago of Alex's Cousin Christopher
when we had visited his (Alex's) Aunt Linda's family.
For the past month or so...
the air around Reno and Lake Tahoe has been smokey
from various forest fires throughout California.
As of today...
there are these fires still burning out of control.
This is a result of arson...
it simply has to be.
I've never seen so many uncontrolled forest fires all at once throughout California...
that was not caused by arson.
This particular forest fire is the one that has been occluding the sunlight
in the normally crystal clear air of Reno and Lake Tahoe.
There hasn't been a fire in this particular area in over 100 years.
This is a picture of it
(not my photo).
We had some slight rain last night...
and some high winds which had cleared out the air in Reno.
All of today, the air was, once again, crystal clear.
However, so long as this particular fire burns out of control...
the smoke will be back.
They believe this particular one will continue to burn for weeks.
this is nothing compared to much larger disasters
around the world.
It is just the largest natural event in this area...
in a long time.
I just think of it as...
there has been a little Hell introduced into this slice of Heaven...
by some little Devil :)
