They are currently evacuating the towns of Velma AND Loco, due to multiple wildfires out of control... Those 2 towns are 11 miles apart and they are bringing the occupants into Duncan (Stephens County Fairground)

How is everyone else doing??

They just said on the radio they are evacuating a town 18 miles west of Stillwater. Isn't that GP's neck of the woods?

RB, we just walked in the door...had NO idea it was this bad all over. I THINK GP is about 20-30 minutes west of Tulsa, so that would be the opposite way from Stillwater. (I think!)

We are trying to listen close to the scanner...the fires have already reached an oil-well and one has broken out on the north side of Duncan.

We've tried! Have everything outside weighted down with bricks, but the wind keeps tossing the bricks across the yard.
