Wild Fires

We got caught behind some wild fires on the way back from Dallas headed to Lubbock. We were in front of the stopped convoy and eventually had to cross the median and turn around. According to myfoxlubbock.com the fire was contained at about 4 p.m. Monday afternoon, with more than 1500 acres burned. The Texas Tech Mesonet recorded a wind gust of 59 mph near Tahoka and relative humidity’s at or below 15%. Perfect conditions for a wildfire, and our delayed entry into Lubbock. Sure was an adventure though!
