Re: Hey, Mense in Myrtle Beach!!!
I was thinking about everyone there as soon as I saw the news. I still have a couple of friends, and a cousin that live there too. When I lived there, we had a very similar fire, a little further south. Fortunately not many homes burned then. I was evacuated though. Those massive pine forests are almost explosive! We were watching the progression of the fire south as it passed just west of us, got within about a mile, and the sounds of the pine trees exploding were almost like a war zone. Very scary. The firefighters thought it would stop at hwy 501 between Myrtle Beach and Conway, a wide 4 lane. Nope, balls of fire the size of cars were blowing across! We had embers landing in our neighborhood, and the fire was a mile away.
Sure hope all our Myrtle Beach members get out of this in good shape!
