    Lots of rain coming to the gatlinburg area overnight into tomorrow so they now have flood and high wind warnings. I live 45 minutes east of there and we have had wildfires for weeks now but there hasnt been a lot of damage from them to homes or businesses. I was just chatting with another member from the Carolinas about the weather and fires since they are experiencing the same kinds of conditions.

    Good! We had the Fort McMurray fires this this summer and it is not funny to lose your house or safety of your family and having to drive through flames higher than hugh trees. Very scary. So "LET IT RAIN!"

    If fires ever reached the city I live in it would be very bad with all the Manufacturing plants around. There was one within a few miles of the explosives plant on the other side of town two weeks ago. I am happy for the rain but not happy I will have to mow again this year since the temperatures are still warm during the day.

    Yes, thankyou @rjisaterp We,too have had fires,but managed,thanks to FD. Nice of you to ask. I am about two hours from Gatlinburg-never been there. It is very sad-so many lost their homes and business. I am very afraid of fire.

    I am glad you are okey-dokey. I agree with you 100% about fire. Thanks for the SITREP (i.e. situation report).

    I live about 5 hours from Gatlinburg, and I go there at least twice a year... absolutely LOVE the area, and since my grandson lives close in Knoxville I want to get a cabin there at some point. I can't tell you how heartsick I am over this... one of our favorite restaurants burned to the ground. It's such a beautiful little mountain town, NOT to mention the Smoky Mountains which are absolutely gorgeous. I have heard rumors that these fires were deliberate... WTH is wrong w/people?!!

    Its not uncommon at all for a volunteer fireman to start a fire around here just so they can put them out. Its usually an abandoned barn or something like that though. A wanna meteorologist started a fire in Kentucky in early November. People are sick

    I was wondering that too. Definately 99% of our firefighters are brave and selfless people. Then there's the occasional crazy who like Wes says, start fires so they can put them out. Thank God for the rain, I've been smelling smoke for weeks! Too close for comfort!

    My heart goes out to all effected by the fires. Such a beautiful place too. I hope the rains come soon and help extinguish the fire. I did hear they caught that POS that started the fire.
