We're Number 1!
So the latest from the Texas Forest Service announced that the Dyer Mill Fire just south of us is now not only the number 1 fire in Texas but it is also the number 1 priority fire in the South US Region. There were 2 Sky Crane Helicopters, 2 BlackHawk Helicopters and 2 Chinook Helicopters as they dialed back the SEATs and are calling in C-130 air tankers now. Although the total outside perimeter is still intact, there have been more mandatory evacuations ordered as the live burns dance around. They are hoping to have it knocked down good tomorrow but only time will tell what is really going to happen.
