Have You Ever Thought a Country Could Burn Up…


I really wish this was media hype but I promise you that this is all too real and it is not getting any better. The fire creeps closer to Moscow every day, hour and second. The air is so dry that it reminds me of Arizona or New Mexico in the USA

The video is exceptional and worth your time to help get a grasp on what is happening here in Russia.

400 fires have sprang up in the last 24 hours and it looks like Moscow is surrounded. With the Moscow area as one of the worst hit areas. Sveta and I have talked about maybe trying to take a trip away from all this but we are not sure that we can get out by car very easily?

We know we can take a train out and so we are thinking about maybe St. Petersburg would be a good direction to go. I am worried about the village but as Sveta says that is not a place we are going. The Ryazan area is burning badly and looks like we will have to wait till it is all over before we know if our village home is still there…

I feel sorry for the Russians because they do not understand heat like this. Most cars are not air conditioned and most living quarters have no air. Fans were not acceptable as a normal item to have in the house. Ice cubes for drinks are non existent, literally! If that tells you anything about the normal climate…

I finally found something that I really miss from America. Buying bags of ice from the store…

I said that I would not post much today but I feel better and have decided that I need to get my butt in gear and do a few things.  🙂

So as always Windows to Russia will help keep you informed on the fire as we see pertinent information pop up…

Windows to Russia!
