Russia Battles Her Fires…

The situation in Russia with the fires, is getting worse, not better and we are starting to worry about our village home. Not that we can do much about it and if it burns it burns…

It seems that fire is on both sides of our village though many kilometers away. Luckily the village is protected by a river on one side major byways on the other side. But everyone knows that dry hot winds blows very hot fire…

If the fire decides to go after the village we will just pray that everyone gets out safe…

We can not just take a 450km jaunt and see if everything is OK because many roads are not accessible and it would be a very dangerous thing to do in the first place…

The video is in Russian but that will not distract from the purpose…

I woke this morning and could not see the rest of the buildings in the complex as it looked like a pea soup fog. My eyes were watering and I was sneezing and coughing from the smoke. You would have sworn that our building was on fire. Moscow is covered in a dangerous envelope of smoke. I know have developed a sore throat and blame that on the smoke in the air…

I want to touch on the fact that the Western press has decided that the fires are under control in Russia. Do not believe it…

A ding dong in the Emergency department of Russia decided to make a statement about how 500 new fires have broke out but we got them all put out quickly! So that became a fact that the fires are under control in Russia…

We sit here and watch today, a total of 7,000+ devastating forest and peat bog fires covering about 500,000+ hectares of land are raging throughout much of the Russian territory. 34 people have died so far!  Does that sound like the fires are about out?

I will keep an update going on the fires as I see things that change…

Windows to Russia!
