Don't worry...the horses are safe. They are on the other side of the valley, but there is a fire up in Joshua Tree National Park. Thunderheads started building up yesterday afternoon (it is monsoon season here in our desert) and the sky got dark in various places. I could see downpours around the valley. Apparently there was hail in Warner Springs! And, near Joshua Tree, there was a huge downpour (in Landers) and flooding! Unfortunately, there were some lightning strikes in Joshua Tree National Park and one started a fire. I saw the fire while driving home from school yesterday afternoon and by dusk, I could see the flames. More thunderstorms are forecast for today. Eight fires were started around the valley by lightning yesterday.
