There are wildfires located east of town. Not threatening us yet, but frightening none the less. DH is out of town for the week. It's funny but I got used to hurricanes and they didn't terrify me like a wild fire does. I guess in part, because you could hunker down in a shelter like a house or school or hospital during a hurricane, but you have nowhere to hide from a fire.
They have started mandatory evacuation orders. Not in our area yet.
