It's raining on white Iris blossoms at the family homestead downslope where the house has stood for just over 120 years. A nice, long, soaking rain is still falling tonight as I write this.
Wild Iris at the mountain house have bloomed in the meadows too but they are facing drought conditions and now wildfire caused by a bungling national forest district's botched prescribed burn near Hermit's Peak. The house is steel and may survive, with a little help from firefighters. The fire is within walking distance now but I am not–mandatory evacuation.
All I can do now is watch the wildfire incident reports as they're updated.
