The El Paso County Sheriff suggested, yesterday morning, that folks wash their cars, park them in an open area and leave the windows open! Apparently it worked as the Black Forest area did receive a brief rain in the afternoon.
We have settled into a routine with three families living under one roof. It's actually quite enjoyable to have extra folks to help prepare food and clean up - just like "Sister Wives"! Well, maybe not quite like that!
In addition to basic house chores and horse chores we find ways to entertain ourselves. One day we all tried a new treat to us... kumquats! Have you ever eaten a kumquat? Here is a sequence of pictures of Angie with her first kumquat:
On another positive note, the mandatory evacuation for the area north of our former neighborhood has been removed. That means that my blog friend at Moondance Ranch can relax... at least for the moment.
This has been a wild, crazy week!
