The fire news is really not good. Here's the map of all the current fires: http://ticc.tamu.edu/Response/FireActivity/default.aspx

They're saying the worst one, the Bastrop fire, is still 0% contained. 25,000 acres have burned, 476 homes destroyed. The Austin American Statesman has info, plus if you want to panic accurately you can follow @statesman and @txstormchasers on Twitter, plus #centraltxfires

The Red Cross is taking donations and has some info on evacuation centers.

We're safe, just very freaked out. We live in Bryan, but the fires are further away from us than it looks on that map. Very worried about everybody else nearby, though.

Whoa - I just looked at where that is on the map, and I'd be freaked out too. I hope everything goes OK.

I was actually reading an article just recently in Audubon magazine about how much worse the problem of wildfires has gotten in recent years, due to a variety of environmental factors...

We're okay here, so far. I think we've been very lucky.
