Hurricanes and Forest Fires
September 06, 2017 • Leave a Comment
Last week Houston, had major flooding from Hurricane Harvey. This week, my mom and her husband are preparing to evacuate their home in Florida as Hurricane Irma approaches, potentially the largest hurricane to make landfall in the United States. And meanwhile, my home state of Montana has seen almost one million acres burned due to forest fires, resulting in evacuations throughout the state and people losing their homes. This image was taken last year as the Maple Fire burned in Yellowstone National Park near the town of West Yellowstone. Two firefighting helicopters are visible in this photo with the largest directly over the horse's head. Please remember to keep the residents of Montana, Florida, and Texas in your thoughts and prayers.
