Hoping for rain to protect our forests

Friday the 13th! Are you superstitious? I think I used to be, but now I take the days as they come without worrying about the date. The one thing I do worry about now is the safety of our forest. Since I live right in the middle of those magnificent ponderosa pines in the Tonto National Forest, I worry about when the next bit of moisture falls our way.
