Default Texas fires

I saw on the news this morning that Texas is having a huge problem with wild fires. I immediately thought of Edwort, I think he lives near Austin and Austin Homebrew. I hope you guys are ok down there and hopefully the fires are nowhere near you guys.

I don't think he's affected. Bee Cave TX is NW of Austin and Bastrop is SE of Austin.

Bastrop is where the very large fires are located, however there are many other fires started in random areas around Austin.

I am SouthWest and haven't been hit yet. However, our neighborhood had a very small fire yesterday that was put out quickly.

It's all over, Burnet is seeing the worst of the damage.

There is scorched earth all over the state.

I know, it's getting worse and the containment seems like it's still at 0.

By the way, right after I posted my first reply, the news reported more fires up in Leander and NW austin area. So, nobody is safe right now.
