What an eventful month September was!! Labor Day weekend brought many undesired wildfires along with some gusty winds that fueled the fires. At my homestead we had a tree fall on a power line and block the driveway and start a fire. Luckily, a friend that lives in Ft. Stockton was leaving to head home and encountered the blocked road and the fire that had just began, the wind was blowing toward the west and the dilapidated old house was under no threat as long as the wind didn’t shift.
