Here's a really Impressive Video from Texas Parks and Wildlife. It's labeled as "Scary" and it is, but not in a horror movie sort of way. The whole video is 50 seconds, and shows the fire moving right across an area of ... maybe 50 feet? I'm not a good judge of distance, especially from a video, but wow! You can see the trees that are NOT dry are surviving well enough, but those that are go up like matchsticks! Scary, indeed.
I have a couple of trees that are dead from last year (or before) that are going to be cut down -- hopefully today. One is where it would fall on the garden/yard area and another is over the driveway.
