I'm back in TX again. I've been here a little over 2 weeks now & we've had a lot of rain in the past couple of days so they are shutting the office down. I'll be flying home tomorrow. I hate that I didn't get my month in. It's costing me about $3000. Oh well, maybe we'll have a hurricane. Isn't that terrible of me to say? I don't wish anything bad on anyone, I just would like to get out one more time before the season is over.
Good to hear from you.
Were the fires all structure fires or brush fires also? That's a lot of fires in a short period of time. We had 7 stucture fires in a 72 hr. period a couple of years ago. It was right at Christmas also, that made it really bad because people lost all the presents that were under the trees for the kids. I got a lot of stuff donated from the Freecycle group. They have been wonderful.
We have had a lot of fires in South TX. We have one right now that is in Brooks county SW of Kingville that is 1310 acres. The dozers are trying to get a line around it. They will be working all night I'm sure. I'm on day 26 of a 30 day detail. I'm getting tired, but I'll be home Monday so I can get some rest. I get 48 hrs of R&R then I can go back out again.
