    Been there, done that here in Montana.

    Stay safe Sonny. If it comes down to it just get the hell out (and thank the man above that you've got fire insurance).

    I'll get me a jug of cheap vodka ($7 for a jug with a handle) at the Swap Meet,
    and howl at the moon, and do a Rain Dance tonight!
    We're sucking hind tit here in AZ as well.

    It's drier than a popcorn fart in a wetsuit down here too...

    No monsoonal flow yet or maybe at all this year

    Stay safe and if it starts getting closer, keep your roof and property hosed down. Been through my share of CA. wildfires.

    The Grizzly Creek Fire is now the highest priority fire in the US.

    The fire is advancing in the higher country towards and above the NW of town.

    It is hard to tell exactly how much it is blowing up, because the smoke from the Pine Gulch fire 80 miles WSW of here is really obscuring the skies.

    Lots of planes in the air.

    I was in the area this morning to take care of and check on water systems this morning and the smoke was far worse than at home and that is really bad.

    Keep praying!

    You just went through that two years ago, except it was at your door step!

    Praying for all your safety Sonny. And everyone else in wildfire country

    Been thru more than our share here in western Montana. Been evacuated and that will let one know the importance of "stuff" (we were fine ultimately others not so much)

    We have several here in out valley currently thanks to last weeks dry lightning storms. No rain for weeks now after a wet spring (so ground cover good and tall) with more dry storms forecast and wind picking up. Dangerous combo.

    Stay safe all and when they suggest going ----- leave.
