    Amen to that!! BUt, I heard an interview with an emergency mgmt guy from texas on the radio yesterday and I recall thinking as I listened to him, "This man is traumatized? Does no one hear this?"

    He could not answer any questions he just kept going over and over the thousands of acres that were burning and how fire fighters were walking away from protecting their own houses to triage fighting the fires elsewhere. I felt so bad for him it was pretty clear he wasn't thinking all that clearly.

    On that note, some one asked him why the National Guard wasn't being called in to help and he said they could not be because they needed only highly trained wilderness fire fighters. But, two minutes later a caller asked where he could go to volunteer to help and he gave him info to do that saying they needed all the hands they could get...... [​IMG]

    Texas is in terrible condition right now......
