Good news and hopefully not bad news

Well the good news is we got approved to get the new bigger house with an awesome pool. We've been a little apprehensive about it and tried not to get our hopes up ~ but they called today and we were approved and the papers are being drawn up for the lease. The possibly bad news is...this is the view from our future neighborhood. We were gonna drive by tonight to show Nathaniel the house and before we could get too close we could see a huge fire burning and guess what.. it's right near the new house. It is a 60 acre brush fire they are trying to contain. They mentioned the streets of the houses in danger and ours is one of them. They have not evacuated the homes yet but they are also not letting anyone (including residents) in. So please keep your fingers crossed that not only our house will be safe but all those others around it and I will try again tomorrow to get into the neighborhood to see how we fared. It's always something, isn't it? So, How was your day?
