Burn Ban
« on: September 16, 2019, 03:31:05 PM »
Y'all think well get enough rain this week for them to lift the burn ban? I know we have a couple weeks until opening cannon, but it worries me there will be no camp fires allowed.  :(

I've heard anywhere from 2" to 8".

As long as Grimes county just gets the low end, the ban should be lifted...

UPDATE

NWS is calling for 10"+ in some areas...Southern Grimes county looks to be in the 2-4 inch range, which tells me that they could get sprinkles or turd floating gully washers for the next four days...

Wow, we've gone from tropical disturbance to tropical depression to tropical storm in about an hour.. Fun, fun, fun...  I think we will get plenty of rain to lift burn bans in the area. Stay safe out there!

Yeah, its crazy how fast it escalated. I feel bad about being selfish about the possibility of not having a camp fire. I hope y'all stay safe and dry!

Southern Grimes county may have only gotten a half an inch, yesterday, but radar is showing multiple thunderstorms developing over TRF as I type this.

Should be enough to break the ban, in the Faire area...

Not yet, as far as I know but we're due some more showers over the next ten days.

*I just checked, the Burn Ban, is in effect for everywhere south of 105, in Grimes.* :(

We’re any of y’all camping out there this weekend? If so, what was the camp fire policy looking like? We’re they allowing fires with restrictions? I plan on going next weekend.

From what i read on FB, there is a burn ban but fires will still be allowed. Must be off the ground, covered, and monitored at all times.
