The wind has died down though you can smell smoke in the air all over town today. I don't know the totals, but the Bastrop fire alone is at 29,000 acres. Here's the fire map this morning:




The Red Cross is taking donations, plus if you here in state, various places are taking donations of food, clothes, etc for the 1000s of people who've lost their homes, donations of hay and grain for evacuated livestock, and donations for evacuated pets. KVUE lists places in Austin taking donations.

Austin Pets Alive took in most of the animals from the animal shelter in Bastrop, and needs donations, and is also having free dog adoptions. I'd be tempted, but there is actually firey death between us and Austin, so I can't get over there.

Everyone Can Promote Equality In Genre Writing

Book I'm reading: Vampire Forensics by Mark Collins Jenkins
It's a non-fiction look at vampire folklore and legends, and attempts to find their origins in epidemics, etc. Really interesting.

Yikes - looks the fires are getting closer to where you are! :-( Do you think you're likely to get evacuated?

It's not as close as it looks, and I think we're too far into town to be in danger. People who live on the outskirts, subdivisions etc will be evacuating towards us.
