That's very nice of you to offer. Not sure if anyone has said "thank you". But "thank you".

Our unit (Texas Highland Lakes) was in the park for an informal camp out when the fires struck. All of our persons and rigs are safe.

One of our unit members has pledged $1000 if the unit members match that fund. The money is to go to the park staff that lost everything in the fire. We have matched more than $500 so far with donations from our members still coming in. Our unit will probably add funds to the donation at our October rally as well.

Some Drought Pictures from Texas

It's the worst I've seen in my 66 years here.

I've been here about a week, stationed in the EOC on Main Street.

Here's a pic of molten aluminum engine block....pulled off the ground from the carcass of a small midsize car...


The support of community is amazing. Local restaurants are feeding the workers from as far away as Austin (4 Seasons Hotel Kitchen came to feed us breakfast yesterday). Fire crews from as far as Hawaii, including Navajo Indian reservation team. Amazing....

Local residents are supporting each other quite well. Even a local restaurant has free meals for those who lost everything, and even if you didn't, the "bill" you get is just suggested amount to pay, with all the proceeds going back to the community for rebuilding... If you are in the area, it is safe to drive 71 to Smithville from Bastrop where you can see some destruction. If in the Smithville area, stop here to eat and help support the community: http://www.facebook.com/ComfortCafe
