If you haven't heard, the State of Texas is on fire. We have had a really hot and dry spring and summer. When I was driving Brittney to school, the panhandle of Texas was greener than Houston. We have been fortunate that the closest fires are 25 miles away in 3 different directions. There have been over 600 homes lost to these devastating fires. It's really sad. Even though there are no fires super close, we are still getting the ash and the smoke from them, but at least I have a home to go inside to. The smoke did give us a pretty sunset yesterday night, but that's the only good thing it has done.
