    Last night our area got terrible wind that caused lots of damage for many. It way SO bad here. We usually never get wind this bad.

    We live just outside of this LITTLE town on our south west. Anyway, they had a bad bad fire start and then the wind made everything worse...anyway, started with one house and turned to 20 completely destroyed homes and neighborhood. It was so big, we could see huge flames from our house and it was burning until this late morning.

    Last night the power went out here. We were out at 9 pm in the dark putting brakes on our wheel lines and still had a row get blown across a road and half of it is completely ruined. Then our huge stock water trough that was in the horse pasture (not being used) blew through our electric fence and the horses were out this morning...but got that all taken care of and luckily they were all ok.

    We also just got a call from a neighbor who got part of his roof blown off his house. So we're sending some of our hired workers out tomorrow to help and then get our wheel lines back, but there is just a lot of stuff ruined around the area.

    So anyway, if any of you feel like sending prayers for our area, it would be much appreciated. Especially for those that lost their homes in the fire. I can't even imagine. :pray:

    I'm sorry you got all that damage, it's great you can help your neighbor. Seems like it has been a really hard winter all over.

    I am so sorry to hear about all the horrible damage the wind and fire have caused :( I hope and pray that everyone can pick up, rebuild and move past this.

    I was just checking our local news channel's website, and there are fires in surrounding counties - house fires - and they had/are having trouble getting them put out because we're getting some of the wind here. 30-40mph wind gusts, although it doesn't seem to bad at our house.
    I hope and pray they can get those fires under control. One thing that scares me to no end is a house fire.

    Thoughts and prayers going out to those in your area who have been affected.
