don't take your hat off son, you'll end up miles from here
The fires in the Texas Panhandle are getting under control, but they're still burning and high winds are expected today - not at all a good thing. The Amarillo Globe-News has some incredible pictures of the devastation - and the heroic acts that saved towns - including this one from McLean taken by Henry Bargas.
Please keep the people of the Texas Panhandle in your prayers - a lot of those small towns were already in serious economic decline and the loss of land and cattle will hurt badly. As far as I know, we've been lucky so far. It gives a whole new meaning to "I'm a sky with no clouds, just trying to rain," doesn't it?
