There are also a bunch of wildfires burning up this way in Oklahoma, it's getting bad and has been this way all summer as is the case in Tx as well. I am really getting tired of all this destruction due to the drought.

At what point do we start electing officials who understand that this climate change thing is for real and we did it to ourselves? It won't get better in a longterm way until we as a nation change our behaviors, and that is a real slow ship to turn around.

Another fire started a few minutes ago. A power pole fell and the live wire hit the rail road track and started the RR ties on fire. Is in an area called the Sand Flatts were the kids go 4 wheeling in the sand dont know if they can get the tank truck to it because of the deep sand. Just said they had to wait out the fire.

We have had several small brush fires in our neck of the woods. We still have idiots that "think" they can do a control burn on their feild and it will be ok.
Still have a few that think it's OK to burn their trash.

And now our wind is really blowing and gusting tonight, I wont get a wink of sleep.

Standing outside and yelling to the neighbor a quarter of a mile away, just isn't the same as a cellphone.
