This is a great event, Scott!  I do hope and pray that you get rain to end your awful dry spell.  I can't imagine how terrifying that would be to have a fire moving toward your home and not having the power to stop it!

Scott my first 2 apartments were furnished completely from yard sales (except for mattresses).  Who doesn't love a good yard sale?
