No.. It came within 1/4 mile of our place at one section in the far back, but not 'on us.' We have another dry summer comming up. Most have been for many years though.
No oaks here... Just Mesquite and cactus as far as you can see, and a few huge walnut trees that have been around forever, and on another part some cedar-elm, and tons of just plain cedar.
This stuff gets so dry in the summer heat it can just burst into flames at the drop of a hat. It don't take much.
