    Stupid stupid stupid!!!

    At about 11:00 today someone just south east of Austin started a 'controlled fire'. The problem with this concept is we are in a drought. To make matters worse, a cold front was moving in which kicked the winds up around 50, yup, 50 mph. The winds were at that point at 7:30 this morning so they were at their peak at 11:00.

    Last I heard 150 people have been evacuated in Hays County and they suspect, if they are lucky, they will have this fire under control in 24 hours.

    How could the authorities know it was origionally a controlled fire without knowing how, and more importantly, who started it?

    What idiot thought he could control a fire in 50 mph winds?

    There's your problem, right there.

    Hopefully they'll get it under control soon.

    Wow! You thought of that all by yourself?

    If you aren't an arson investigator you totally missed your calling!

    Hey... I don't set that big of a fire without having a lot of marshmellows... (I'm pagan, protesters suck)

    I gotta say this one: "You know what comes from texas, right?"

    My Dad said that to me once. I told him I wasn't a steer. *g* he wasn't so thrilled about the other option, though I got a good laugh at it.

    I agree ... the wind was blowing hard (with up to 60 mph gusts) in Oklahoma yesterday.

    You can nominate thread wins but they must be seconded and voted upon by the counsel. The councel meets once a month in a top secret underground location where we bring in hookers, smores and beer.
