Message:  Lots of wild fires across North, Central, and East Texas yesterday due to extreme drought and high winds. Some 300 homes were lost in Bastrop alone,southeast of Austin. A young woman and her small child were killed in Gladewater when they could not escape their burning home. Several homes and farm buildings were lost on the outskirts of Teague, the small town where I live. Please pray for all of those affected.

The good news is - It's 72 degrees right now and the high today is forecast for 86. That's a twenty degree drop from what we've been having. Hope it sticks.

Happy Labor Day to all, and let's continue to hold Susie G. in our thoughts and prayers.
