With limited resources to fight all these fires why hasn't the governor
called in the guard to help?
Prayers are with y'all. Be safe!Kris RichinsTexas
It has been many years since I spent time in Grouse Creek, Lynn, and Etna. But
my memories of the people of that area, and Grouse Creek especially, are warm
and good. I remember those living there (mostly Kimbers and Tanners) as some of
the most kind, giving, down-to-earth, thoughtful and hard-working folks you
could hope to met. I can't imagine how there is enough stock
hauling capacity to get their livestock to safer pastures. Pray for rain and
that the wind shifts to favors those fighting the inferno so good fire-breaks
can be built. If the Bishop or anyone out there is reading this, tell us what
we can do to help.
We will continue to pray for you...it's heartbreaking to see families go
through this and we hope it will be soon over.
If anyone in the path of these fires have Trash Pumps, could they please make
mud and use the trash pumps to spray mud on all their stuff that they don't
want to be burned up before they evacuate, and then evacuate. With all their
stuff coated with mud, the stuff shouldn't be able to be burned much by the
fire. If, on return, their stuff isn't burned up, they can simply wash
the mud off, and still have their stuff.
