Keeping things in perspective
Two weeks ago, then again at the beginning of the week my biggest weather concern was the peas. Today I've been grumpy because steady 40-50 mph winds with 60-75 mph gusts have kepts me from putting my tomatoes in the ground. On a lark I turned on the seldom used TV to discover that Oklahoma is alive with wild fires. One is just 12 miles west of me, moving east. With winds like this they can't use air support to put the fires out. They're trying to dig ditches ahead of the fires, but it's not working so well. I'm sure we'll be fine, but the fact is people all over my state are losing their property and their homes. Somehow frozen peas, unplanted tomatoes, and the 20 foot tree now stretched across my driveway don't seem so bad.
