Which means my county is on fire again. There is a fairly stiff breeze going too.
Please God protect our all volunteer fire fighters, help them to quickly put out this fire, & give us a healthy dose of rain too. Amen.
Fire is a horrible thing to deal with anywhere, let alone in ranch country where it wipes out hundreds of, if not thousands of acres in a heartbeat. Basically there is NO driving livestock to a safer pasture in these prairie fires. Even worse in these drought conditions we are still suffering.
Do you have various fire breaks cut ? I know if it gets windy that may not help much but those crawling grassland fires can be slowed/blocked by good fire breaks (and lets them do a back fire if the situation is right.
Hope you guys get some rain (but no lightening)

It's a "KILT". If I wore something underneath, it would be a "SKIRT".
I fear the smell of smoke. And almost came unglued recently when a neighbor (well over a mile away) was out burning something. We called the sheriff's department. What idiot burns things when there's been a burn ban in effect for nearly a year....
I wish you lots of luck. I was involved in the Arizona fires back in June and had to evacuate for 6 days. The fires came within a mile of my place. I learned to always have those important things packed and ready to go. We had less than a hour to evacuate. I had 12 dogs, luckily my BO was able to get enough trucks to evacuate our barn. I was supposed to go help evacuate the barn and pull a trailer, but it took me almost a hour to drive a mile down the road!!!
Be prepared for evacuation!!!!!! and God Bless.
We do not have an overpopulation of dogs, we have an under population of responsible dog owners!!!
