Well, headed into town for lunch today, and looked in my rearview and noticed a big ass fire back to our east. Got home and got out the camera to get some pics. It's a doozy. Problem is, water is so scarce, I'm sure they're having a hell of a time getting enough water to fight it with.

Tell me about it. Our lake is dangerously low, and we haven't sold nearly enough of the horses yet. Luckily, got one of me and my wife's foals sold last night, so at least that's another $6k in the bank.

It is pretty shitty when you have to respond to fires caused by glass bottles laying in the grass.

Fires are nature's way of getting rid of old dead shit so it can start over. I'm not sure we should be getting in the way of that too much, especially with the drought and water being in short supply.

Obama will throw some money at the farmers and they'll be fine.
