The day pictured above was windy. It was March 2009 or 08 and dry and windy. The fire at this point was about 2 miles away, if I remember right. Scary doesn’t touch it.
All of our boys and Big Boss were out on tractors in the middle of this chaos trying to disc up ground ahead of the fire in an attempt to stop it. It was headed straight for the farm and house and eventually, the town. I think there were fire departments from 6 different counties fighting this monster. It was nothing compared to the ones that hit Robert Lee, Texas in 2011 last year. That was devastation at its worst.
