With the driest and hottest year on record, some of my followers in the western states would appreciate an update on the wildfire situation. Be very careful if warnings are called. Do not try to outrun or even out-drive the fires. They can move up to and including over 90 miles per hour. Stay informed by your local authorities, be ready to move in a flash amount of time, and ALWAYS follow through with a warning and order to vacate. Visit the NOAA NWS Fire Weather website for more important information.
