Was kinda thinking set everything to a full circle and have it start 4-5 times a day.

Good luck, hope it stays away from you and your house.

Good luck, Dana. I'm glad you got everyone out safely, we'll pray that your home and business are spared.

The year we had the really bad drought and wild fires in Texas we had a couple that were within 15 miles of the house. We were never really in danger but it's still unsettling to see the huge pillars of smoke, the sky completely hazed out and have ash falling on you like snow. A lot of people here (and probably there as well) didn't have the luxury of knowing in advance it was coming and weren't able to pack their belongings before having to evacuate. I'm glad that wasn't the case for you.

I feel for all those folks. I lost a house to a fire years ago, burned to the ground, changed my life.
