Wildfires have raged around the state of Texas for weeks now. It is estimated that these fires have burned over 1.8 million acres of land.
One of the hardest hit spots in terms of homes lost is the weekend and resort community of Possum Kingdom Lake west of Forth Worth. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that 159 house and 2 churches have burned in this fire. Residents have been told during the last week to pack those things they want to save in their cars because of the speed with which the fire has moved.
From this order to pack what you want to save comes the quote of the day.
“We’re in Texas, so we pack guns and knives,” said Ted Lewellen, a real-estate agent.
God Bless Texas!
