I was in Palestine Saturday visiting family. The wind began picking up from the tropical storm and as soon as I noticed that the rain was gong to
completely miss most of east Texas, I looked at my dad and told him..."all of east texas is gunna be ablaze tomorrow."
Sure enough, as I was driving back to Dallas the next afternoon, I probably passed 20 emergency vehicles and saw 6 separate fires, 2 of which were
extremely large and 1 of those was headed straight for a busy little city (Corsicana). It didn't look pretty. All I could think about were those
people, especially the elderly, that weren't aware of the incoming danger, as these fires were moving extremely fast.
