    I just saw on the news this morning that there are Wild Fires burning in Myrtle Beach. I was shocked. I hope everyone gets out ok and they are able to put them out soon. I know this is not a laughing matter but I could not help but think of Rod when I saw this.

    I did not get to hear all the details but they did specifically mention a resort area of Myrtle Beach and showed pictures of either a hotel or condo or something. They said the fires had jumped the road and were getting very close to some neighborhoods. I really pray that the firefighters are able stop this before too much devastation happens. :disapprove: :(

    I'm pretty sure that Conway is where Brodavid's bunch is located. Hope everything is OK.

    Hey everybody, we are fine, so far the fire has been to the west of us, just alot of smoke, and it is a big fire, you can see the glow of it at night and the smoke all day, they closed alot of schools and business, some of the roads are closed. The think it started on Hwy 90 which is just outside of Conway and it cut a four mile wide swath to the intercoastal waterway near Barefoot Landing, in North Myrtle Beach,estimate is over 70 homes destroyed, no injuries. over 25 square Miles has been burnt.
    Miss Carol will be safe,
    as for Rod...............

    Pray for the firefighters, all they are getting is Rest Breaks

    Love to all,

    well good for u ,, dave ,, but i feel for the others ,, but like i said before ,, it was bound to happen ,,, even in an ocean area ,, i know on the news they said it was mostly the peat that may have made it so bad ,, but to u ,, glad u are ok ,,, and also to the others ,, i feel for them ,,, as being a FF myself ,, i know the other FF's were only doing their job ,, but they have families too ,, and i know they were thinking of them every minute of that fire ,, and also feeling for the ones ,, that the homes they could not save ,,, it does cross their mind ,, every house that is burnt ,,, means a family without a home ,, i know i feel it everyitme we have a house fire ,,, it's part of the stuff they don't tell u about on the news :approve: :approve:

    It is very good news to know that there are no injuries as of yet. We pray that it stays that way. We also pray that the firefighters do not get too exhausted which may make injuries more possible. And we pray that the conditions change to help the firefighters get it under control and put out as soon as possible.
