Brush fire




Texas needs rain. Depending on the county, drought conditions in Texas range from normal to an exceptional drought . In Kaufman county we are in a moderate drought. Yesterday driving home, we noticed a brush fire just north of McClendon-Chisholm in southern Rockwall county. From our view we couldn't see any firefighters or trucks, but we could see the flames. My picture isn't very good going 60 MPH tends to make for poor pictures.

c'est impressionnant. j'espère qu'il va pleuvoir, mais surtout pas de vent pour attiser le feu.
it is impressive. I hope it will rain, but no wind to fan the fire.

The trailing smoke illustrates very well that the fire is blazing. I hope that you weren't driving 60 miles an hour and snapping photos at the same time, Jim!!

I didn't know your area was in drought. Brush fires in February would explain it.

That might be us this summer because we don't have a big snow pack at all. MB

In Ca we have problems with wild fires too.
Great thing that you are expecting rain!

It's in the Paint Shop Pro program that Brian has - I bought the program when I got my new computer!

Fires are scary. Our fire season was pretty tough, lost a lot of homes. For a while no matter which direction you turned in there was smoke in the sky. Sure made for some amazing sunsets though.
