Forgive me if this has already been asked/mentioned/discussed:

Has anybody worked with fire retardant spray on coatings (permanent or temporary) that are supposed to protect structures during wildfires?

If so, how were they applied and how long did they last?

Other thoughts?

Was a little on edge until it started raining too. Still raining, but much lighter - about a quarter inch of rain so far, which we really really needed.

Hopefully this won't start any fires since it was raining - at least at my house. It moved off to the north, far enough to where I could not hear the thunder.

Interesting side effect; I have some small surface mount solar LED lights on my porch, when the lightning was close enough they would go on for a second or two (normally by this time the battery has run down enough to where they are off). I think it is the static electricity because the porch light did not turn them on. Also, I could see my breathe, the outside temp was 64* - must be the humidity.

As I've mentioned before - I know from experience that fires can burn for months, sometimes unseen. Stumps can burn down into the ground and spread - rotten stumps are especially bad. Debris and slash piles burn really hot because the fuel is all in one place, so they burn into the ground too.

Look for smoke - where there is smoke there is fire.
