From our house, we have an amazing view of the Jerusalem Forest. We love it.
BUT that means we were in the front line yesterday when a fire broke out and spread like… well… wildfire. It was hot and dry and very windy. In addition, the snowstorm we had during the winter caused a lot of trees and branches to fall, making the fire spread faster.
Fortunately we are OK and so is our house, apart from a couple of windows. We don’t have electricity yet and hence proper wifi. When we do, I’ll answer some questions about my main character as part of a blog hop.
Stay safe everyone!

Sounds really scary Miriam, glad you’re all OK and that there wasn’t too much damage! xxx
Thanks, Gill. Unfortunately our garden was badly damaged, but the main thing is that we’re all right, and so is the cat. She didn’t tell us where she went during the fire….
Wildfires can be rather adventuresome, trying to put it very mildly. I’m glad you’re okay and that things will be able to settle down to some normalcy for you soon.
Thank you, Angela. Things seem to have returned to normal – or as normal as they can be here.
This must have been very frightening. I’m relieved that you all (including the cat) were unharmed, and I hope you’ll soon be able to put right the damage.
Yes, we saw how close the flames were. Very scary!
