We had 24 hrs of off and on gentle rain that modified the temperature and brought up the humidity.  Luckily there was little wind or lightening.  Fire situation seems to be under control for now, although the towns north of us are still evacuated.  Payson is pulling together to help the folks displaced.

Mom's move is winding down.  Not as much sold as is I'd like, but what is left next Monday will be donated.

The door to my fridge fell off this morning.  Too much wrong with this motorhome now, too much money needed to bring it up to standards.  Said I'm rv shopping.  Less than 20 min later I've committed to buying my manager's Pace Arrow motorhome that be hasn't got time to use.  Now, once Mom's apartment is cleaned out I'll start clearing out this motorhome so Callie, Bosley and I can move into it.

If it's not one thing it's another.

Quick update

I'm sorry I've been remiss at keeping folks updated.

Mom bought a 5th wheel in the park where I live in the summers.  New manager at her retirement apartment was adding more.and.more.rules and she got disgusted and decided to go into the rv park.  That is where all my energy has been going, helping her move.

Friday a wildfire was started north west of Payson and the two towns north of us have been evacuated down here.  Highway 87 north out of town is closed tight.  The fire is still growing.  It is called the Backbone fire if you want to check it.

That leaves highway 87 S to Phoenix and highway 260 east to I 40 via Heber and Holbrook.  Just learned that there is a fire near Heber this morning.  I started loading the keepsakes here at the apartment to put in my storage unit intending to get closer to being ready to leave if they close 260.

While texting Sandy Dixon to keep here in the loop, got a text that a semi hit a power pole in town on 87 and there are wires down.

Also, it has been over 100* every day.

Mom is holding up well, I'm doing my best, Bosley cat and Callie dog are fine.
