    It is so dry here... we where I live about 65 miles SW of Dallas are 16 inches below normal for the year and with this wind... a small spark and it is really really bad news. We have been under a burn ban since June...

    Weatherpersons are saying we need at least 10 inches of rainfall, to counteract the drought conditions....

    It's very dry here even near the lake and we are putting up burn ban signs in our area. We are hoping the city will ban fireworks, but they will shoot them anyway. We are very concerned about fires starting. Sure hope they are able to contain the Fort Worth ones.

    I'm sure they're going to ban the fireworks here. The wind seem to be dying down here, tho. Are you in that area southwest of Fort Worth?

    Isn't that pretty central to all of us? Austin is 2 1/2 hrs from me and only about 1/2 that from Waco.. Waco is an hour from me...
