Historic drought and heat combined with high winds has caused fires to erupt all over Texas. It sounds dramatic, but really, there are fires burning across the state, including some relatively close to where we live. [Edited 9/6/11: And now I mean right where we live. Brush fires have broken out within a two miles of our home. This is very surreal.]
Thankfully, the winds are finally calming down. Though it has begun to cool off there has been no rain and none in the forecast. No humidity, nothing to help out the parched earth.
So, please, send your prayers/energy/spells/whatever. We need relief.
