Windy and fiery in Texas...just in time for Firewise workshop

I'm wondering when the state wildfire officials will begin to put two and two together: invite Steinberg to a meeting in our district and watch the red flags fly!

This is the 2nd time in a month that I've traveled south for Firewise and been met with high fire danger conditions on arrival. This pretty map from ESRI shows big red arrows signifying wind speeds over 40 miles per hour. And trust me, I can hear and feel the wind from my temporary perch in Georgetown, Texas. I nearly got pushed out of the parking lot of my hotel trying to get from my vehicle to the building. Good thing I overpack: my nice heavy luggage saved me!

I'm here for a Texas Firewise Workshop tomorrow and a tour of the Sun City Firewise community on Wednesday. Interest should be high given current conditions! Wish me luck!
