I'll pray for you all to get the next storm to put out the fires and wash all the Mexicans back into the river......

Default What up with that.......

No safe place.... Soooooo half the country is on fire and the other half is drowning, and whats in the middle is torn up by tornado's, I got me a gut feeling we are in for an early winter, and it will be cold and wet.....Enjoy life while you can......Tommorow might be a lot different......

It's very scary. I've had some patches of land go up around us but were either put out or died naturally. The wind picked up over the weekend and made everything quite a bit worse.

This is me standing in front of the helicopter that was dropping water. Those aren't clouds on the right hand side of the picture...

The helicopter was dipping water out of whatever pond and swimming pool the pilot could find. My friend's father drowned in Pruitt Lake earlier this year when his boat overturned. You can now wade all the way across that lake.

This is the only rain I've seen in a LONG TIME! I got wet, and it felt GOOD!

Firefighters were in defense mode. We lost several houses, and our decisions on where to place firefighters was based on vacant vs. occupied.

This kind of crap is supposed to happen in California, not NORTH EAST TEXAS!!!

Terrible situation.

The West is burning up and the East is drowning. Here in the Northeast the rain needs to STOP yesterday. Too bad there isn't a way to redistribute it.
