About a month ago a lightning storm moved in. We drove out to the most northern end of the park and just watched the lightning strikes. It was quite a few miles from us so it was ok. About an hour later the storm moved in and began to strike the valley at the bottom of the ridge we were parked on. Two strikes later the valley was on fire. Two day after those strikes the fire reached our site. Here are some pics of what happened.

We lost a total of 20 turbines. Cost for each is
$800,000.00
