Kelley, not trying to steal your thunder, but, there was a suggested/related video on the YouTube page that you linked to that I just watched that is heart wrenching:

The one thing that I've feared all my married life is to lose a home to a fire. Hurricane damage (other than complete inundation) can be repaired. Moderate tornado damage can be repaired. And in both of these events, in most cases, you can save your keepsakes and hierlooms. When your home burns to the ground, everything is gone.

Horrible. Looks like one of those post-apocalyptic movies.

And to think that some of these started b/c of sparks that came from the power lines as they were being blown about by LEE's and the COLD FRONT's wind.

Now that there is what I call DRY!!!


MAC, that too is one of my fears, losing everything in a fire.
You just better step back a few paces from her if she does go to burning. I have a few items that do not take to kindly to fire.

That's what I told my wife, if our house goes up. If it goes up in flames, your going to need a bullet proof truck to put it out.

Bastrop fire has taken over 1000 homes and 64000 acres now. I know they say hurricane are bad, but we have more homes in Texas lost than the east coast storm a few weeks ago. FEMA came right in and helped. Obama said he would do what ever it took. 1000 homes, over 6000 people out of there homes. And that's just one fire. We have had hundreds of fires this summer. Oboma, we dont need politics, we need help!!! Now!!! Send the planes, send the helicopters and keep your poltics.

How are they fighting these fires with no water? I cannot imagine how futile it must seeme. Are they only able to use fires lanes and chemicals for containment? How are they doing it? Poor Grammie's son's house burned yesterday. This is just sickening.
