Man! this is a calif. story :confused: I hope it stays in the hills and they get it out before any damage is done to people or property. :firejump: I had thought this nation got hit pretty good this winter with record rain & snow I guess the carolinas were left out? How has this affected your lakes and rivers? are they below level? Stay safe and I hope the wind is blowing away from you location.

There are a bunch of TV and radio towers on top of the mountain that have been safe until now, but they are being threatened. The state has placed a Burning Ban in effect, even for those who have premits to do so.
I have a numbnuts next door neighbor who is obcessed with building a fire every weekend in the bottom behind our houses about 5:00pm every Saturday and Sunday and leaves it unattended to go out during the night. Code requires all open fires be attended and totally put out, by 6:00pm.
If ya'll hear about me being shot by this sob this weekend, it's because I called the fire department on his butt. He is not gonna set this area on fire, NO WAY!:mad:

We've had enough to fill up the lakes, rivers and streams, but when it stops raining, the winds have been strong enough to dry everything out in a day or two and the vegetation/leaves/brush gets crispy real quick, with low humidity and the fire danger rises. We are suppose to get some T-storms tonight that may help, but.....we will see!

Yep! just like cali :confused: you get enough rain to make everything green and over grown and when the santa ana winds kick up and dries everything out it's fires jus waiting to happen. :mad: I'll bet you see this all over the news in cali this year due to the amount of rain they got.

We haven't had this much fire danger since back in the early '90's, but the fires were in the Southwestern Foothills just east of Asheville and 120 miles away. We had smoke here for a week or so from them, but this is a different story as close as it is to us. One good thing, is it will have to cross some serious flat farmland to get to us any time soon, but ya never know what fire will do!

The fire is now under control, since all this rain has come in and will be here for the next 4 days, they say!
