Our area has been experiencing dry weather since the spring.....it's now officially being called a drought. I've never really worried about wild fires before....but now one can't help but pay attention to this very real risk.This is the view looking East from Gen's house in Hendersonville toward the largest and growing fire in the Party Rock area.
Unfortunately, it's hitting closer to home....it took nearly 3 hrs. to travel what should have been an hour + drive home from Gen's. Interstate I40 going just West of Asheville was down to less than one lane as another fire popped up along the highway/ridge.
No rain expected in the future.....the fires we so often hear about in the West are getting all too real for many of us.
