ScienceDaily (Nov. 30, 2011) — The record-breaking drought in Texas that has fueled wildfires, decimated crops and forced cattle sales has also reduced levels of groundwater in much of the state to the lowest levels seen in more than 60 years, according to new national maps produced by NASA and distributed by the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

I wonder If Mr. Pinkerton buying up land rights for the underground aquifers and draining them dry has anything to add to the current situation.
At least I think it is Pinkerton doing so, could be mistaken. Cause we all know...if you can drill to it on you're land, you can suck it out of your neighbors.

I remember smelling the smoke from the Bastrop fires (and that's several miles away from me). I honestly thought there was a fire in my neighborhood - it was that strong. I can't imagine having to live through those fires.
Rain is expected tomorrow and the weekend here. Let's hope it goes on and on!

Now would be the time to make the drinking water reservoirs larger for future times like these. The populations are only going to increase in size. If they wait and do nothing, next time it can be a deadly situation.
