183/365... Big ol' shed fire joy

We were driving home when hubby got a call that there was a structure fire. After dropping hubby off at the fire station to jump on a truck, I decided to follow the fire truck... with the kids in tow.

We saw the smoke and fire from miles away. I always say a prayer for safety for all when there is a fire call but when I saw the flames, it took my breath away.

Much to my surprise, hubby got home shortly after we did. I was expecting him to be gone all night.

Little did I know that this fire was an old, large shed that needed to come down.

How very thankful I am that it wasn't a residence and that everyone was safe.

Old, large shed fire joy.


In other news... I submitted a photo for Pioneer Woman's "America" assignment. It was chosen for "Group 5"!!!!! Tomorrow she will announce the finalist. I feel as though I have already won! YIPPEE!!!!

I can't NOT have this be a joy as well...

Pioneer Woman joy.

Check it out...

Congratulations again on your PW success! I was surprised and disappointed this morning when I saw it wasn't chosen as a finalist. This fire shot is great - love the intensity of the dark blue sky against the flames.
