It started out a beautiful summer day. We woke up, had our breakfast of Scofield Eggos, and went down to the lake to fish. It was a perfect morning. No wind, smooth waters, fish were jumping. We were excited for the day. Then another cabin owner came down to the lake to notify us that the town of Scofield had just been evacuated and the road into Scofield had been closed to incoming traffic! Why you ask?
Because of this forest fire! We were so bummed! And worried about our cabin. We did not want to leave but when the ranger came around to give us the boot we knew it was time. Leaving Scofield was very sad. We were worried about the cabin, sad about all the things we still had planned for the lake that we did not get a chance to do, and hoping the best for the fire fighters.
The fire is still burning and growing. We are still praying that it will end soon and everything will be okay. We are hoping to return back to the cabin. We know that the most important thing is that we are safe and we keep telling ourselves that material possessions are not as important. But in our hearts that cabin means more than just a place to stay. It is connected to so many memories and happiness, it is a part of us.
