Rain/Snow can't show up soon enough at my uncles place. Fire started west of his place and was moving pretty fast towards it Saturday/Sunday.
He fired up the vintage Cat dozer and has been cutting fire breaks along his western fence line and around the house / barnyard. Has water tanks with trash pumps staged around the house/ barnyard and moved cows to the north side of the ranch.
He hasn't grazed the southwest side of the ranch for a year to allow for the grass to come back and this is where the fire is heading. If the fire was to burn several sections it would put more stress on available /grass pasture and really hose things up resulting in feeding hay earlier than normal.

Read that a week ago. More stupidity from the left.
Remember reading something similar concerning the Houston flood.... basically saying the flood would not have been nearly as devastating if they would stop building / approving development in flood plains.

Same with California along the lines of approving development in areas that are historically susceptible to catching fire.
