January 2, 2011

This is an image from last night's fire. My mom woke me up at midnight by yelling "Jen, wake up! Grab your camera! Howard Street is on fire!!!"

So, I threw on some shoes and pants, grabbed my camera and headed out to the block behind my house.

Luckily, no one was injured. Most of the homes weren't occupied, but nine were still left homeless. Luck was also on our side because the weather wasn't too cold so the water didn't freeze and there was no wind so it didn't spread to the homes opposite or garages next to it.

I took a walk back this morning and took some photos of the aftermath. They can be seen on my smugmug page.

We got my dog Barkley from a breeder who lived on a farm. I suppose you can take the dog off of the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the dog. Since he's been a pup, he has absolutely loved cows! My dad doesn't help matters because he takes Barkley and Cranberry on lengthy rides to Pitman to see the cows. Today, since my mom was sick, I went along on the cow tour. Here is a picture of Barkley watching the cows.
