To give you an idea of the extent of the Possum Kingdom Complex Fire, here is a map with pertinent marks. The distance legend is at the bottom as well as the location of our place — “Matthews (Flying Hat).” The green lines indicate the field observations I have made the last few days — going north from Flying Hat on SH 108, SH 919 to US 180, then east and west to the Stephens County line, then southward along SH 16 to Strawn.
Wildfires were observed yesterday, NORTH of US 180 and WEST of SH 16 to Strawn — thirty-six miles of the sub-route. Many of those were fire spots that were lessening in intensity.
The temperature this morning at the Matthews Place is 65 deg., humidity is 20 percent. In looking at the National Weather forecast, there were NO Red Flag Warnings for today!
I will be writing a post later today. With a click of your mouse, you may enlarge the map for obligatory detail.
Corrections: italics used to emphasize and word added that these were observations made yesterday. Large caps used to indicate NORTH and WEST in locations.
Sentence added that some hot spots were lessening in intensity yesterday.
