We are OK, 7 miles or so from the fire. Luck of the draw regards the wind. Evac area is up to S. Turkey Creek (we are N. Turkey Creek). The wind has reversed itself in the last couple hours (good news for Deer Creek/Ken Caryl/Lockheed Martin) which seems like a) it will blow back on itself and b) the SW edge might flare. In fact down by Waterton it did, but the tankers were all over it like Uncle Ben on Rice. It is laid down now.

Keep praying.
