Oklahoma wildfires

Here in the northern part of the state we are in an extreme drought…and it isn’t helping that winds are blasting through with gusts up to 50 miles per hour…add to that the absolute MORONS who decide to barbecue outside, or throw away a lit cigarette butt, or drive their hot vehicle up onto dried tall grass and you end up with yesterday and today.

We have several towns being evacuated because of out of control wildfires.

My favorite state park has been decimated.

An historic railroad town is gone.

People are rushing in horses and wranglers to try to get the cattle rounded up and out of the fire’s path before they end up barbecued.

Several really special small towns west of here are gone.

My meat guy at the local grocery store is homeless today because of the fires.

And last night, at sunset, the sky was so filled with smoke that the sun was ruby red, and the sky was brown.

Oklahoma could use some prayers right about now.

      1. Maybe it will grow? Sorry, I have a perverted way of commiserating with people. Truly, I am concerned for you and George. Stuff can be replaced, but not wonderful people like you.

  3. Sorry to hear about the fires destroying homes, towns and parks. It’s been the same around here, but as far as I know nothing but dry land was burned. The wind and sand have been awful.
