    Wildfires Around Austin, Texas Region

    Over the past 24 hours 16000 acres and 400 homes have burned all around the Austin, Texas area, which is affecting some 8 to 10 counties...including the county that I live in.

    This is paticularly frightening to me and and my community as smoke and ash is hovering over us and is rather unsettling.

    Since Michelle Bachmann is claiming that the hurricane and earth quake along the east coast is God telling America that we have become an obese nation from spending too much. I wonder if she'll next say that the 12 to 15 wildfires raging in Central Texas is a message to our nation that if Rick Perry is elected president that our lives will be a living hell?

    Don't know if Bachmann will make such a claim...but as a native Texan...I do.

    Clearly God wants you to throw homosexuals and illegal Mexicans into the fire to put it out.

    In all seriousness, stay safe, my thoughts go out to the Texans.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Please tell us why you don't like Perry. I don't like what he did to public education in the state and would like to understand what others who aren't just trying to bash him think. Thanks!

    yeah, i'm out in Liberty Hill, sitting on many, many acres of very dry brush and trees.... I can't lie and say i'm not nervous about fires.
    when I smelled smoke yesterday, we put out emergency plans into motion... just in case.

    God had nothing to do with the fires... he wasn't giving us a message about how horrible Perry is.

    I don't generally attribute the stupidity of people to God.
    one of the fires was started by a teenage boy burning love letters... several more by people BBQ'ing in open pits.. another by a homeless man smoking.

    It IS most unsettling.
    If you're forced out of your home, and have no where else to go, PM me, I'm jsut down the road in San Antonio, I got a spare room and can put you up for a night or two if worst case occurs.

    Since she said it as a joke, I'm assuming you are also positing this as a joke.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Is any of that actually confirmed?

    i'm fairly new here... been here about a year and a few months.
    i'm familiar with the Stiles clan, the Muhle clan, a few Yates, a few Collins.... all good people... some are very..ahem...uhh.."simple" folks lacking in the finer points of intelligence, but good people still.

    not sure what it was like 20 years ago, but i'd imagine it was much much smaller....
    we even gots us a Subway resterrrant now.. makes some fiiine sammiches


    i got those causes from the lips of some fire official that was quoted in the Statesman, so i'd imagine that are confirmed.
