Windy can be fun! (As long as it is not knocking your house down or anything grim like that.)

Just up the road from us...

KPAX News
SUPERIOR - Officials are evacuating more homes at this hour as the 3,650 acres West Mullan fire keeps burning near Superior.
The Mineral County Sheriff's Office is evacuating residents living in the Keystone Gulch area, which is west of the blaze.
Mineral County Sheriff Ernie Ornelas says his home is also among the now 150-plus homes that have been evacuated since the fire sparked Sunday evening.
The number of residences that were under either mandatory evacuation or pre-evacuation notice stood at 150 earlier on Thursday.
The Montana Red Cross is running a shelter for evacuees at the Superior Elementary School.
We'll have more on this developing story as information becomes available.

The next News Break said another one had popped up closer to us. We are starting to get a whiff of smoke in the air.

How close is close? I think I'd be in panic mode if I smelt smoke in the air! Do take care.

Thanks!

They are both about 60 miles (96km) away, just in different directions. No panic yet, but it is just up the road, less than an hour by car.

Have you had this sort of situation before? Do you have a "plan" for if it gets dangerously close?

Oh yes, this is yearly for us. I am also on the 3rd call for volunteers as medical and 5th call as cook. That means I will be a third wave or 5th wave of a volunteer force if they need us.
