    From the far side of the big pond to the West-(also bush fire prone). There are thousands of people in this country and around the world who are praying for you-I hope it is of some small comfort in this terrible time. Thinking of you all.

    I hope your family and friends were able to get out Dave. These scenarios just get worse and worse, I dread to see what the final numbers come to.
    We get lots of lightning fires over here on the East Slope, but because of the prevailing weather they hit the Glass Mountains across the valley from me. My house is all metal, but in a firestorm the glass is the big vulnerability.

    It's high time some folks took a hard look at proper management. IMO

    The western States have seen the worst wildfires with lives and property lost over the past 15-20 years, California, Oregon, and Washington States especially.
    The men and women who battle these things for a living are stout and heroic and under-appreciated.
    I hope the news you hear in the coming days will be good, Dave - regarding your friends and family members still unaccounted for.
