fires update, fair weather, football

theyre getting there
except for the biggest bastrop fire containment is happening
(34000 acres 30 % containment)

the spicewood fire west of austin is 100 % contained
the steiner ranch fire in northern austin is almost contained
the other smaller fires are also mostly contained

close to 1000 homes have burned in these fires

it is very smoky in this area
if you have asthma emphysema or respiratory problems then this
makes it difficult to breathe outside

there is even more fire fighters and equipment arriving now for
use in fighting these fires

hopefully all those hurricanes will do something to bring moisture
into here to slow these fires down some

thank goodness for this fair weather
it makes all this fire business a little more tolerable but
not acceptable

its so nice to be able to open the house to the cool night air
makes it easy to sleep at night
as the aricept im on interferes with my sleep the cool night air
sure helped me sleep last night

yesterday i took my cup of coffee out to my electric meter
and just watched it spin backwards all day
finally the solar panels are overcoming the electricity used by
our air conditioners which have been running non stop now for over
3 months
it sure was therapeutic to see my meter reading less at the end of
the day compared to the reading at the beginning of the day
hope we can have more days like this

now we just need rain

there are 3 hurricanes abrewing in the gulf and surrounding areas
katia, maria, nate with nate the only one that has the possibility of
helping bring in moisture into the state
just dont bring all that wind that lee brought on us which
led to this disaster

maybe obama was smart to give his address tonight just before
the first nfl game of the year between the saints and the packers

he has an audience that may normally not watch his address
hopefully he says something that we can all grab a hold of to
make us feel better about the economy

am just ready for the nfl games to start
there goes all my weekends for the next 16+ weekends
sure glad my wife she likes football too
my sons they and i trained her well over the years
she likes things we like
thanks my wife she
you are a good sport

baylor may be blocking the aggies from leaving the big 12
for the sec
baylor has the most to lose in this big 12 mess as they will
probably be left in the cold without a major conference to
be a part of
they and some of the others are filing a lawsuit to block the aggies
which will prevent them from going to the sec

dont mess with those baptists
