Yesterday was a good day for the 500 firefighters who fought the 21,000 acre fire in Montgomery/Waller/Grimes Counties just north of Houston.
The Houston Chronicle has a good article this morning detailing all of the particulars, but in short, it appears that they’re getting this fire under control at last, with the help of super-human efforts and the giant DC-10 tanker that has been dumping flame retardant on the fire for two days. Thank you to all the firefighters!
Unfortunately, the news is not all good because the 100-degree heat returns this week, and the winds are going to pick up a bit this afternoon. Plus, there is no rain in sight. We’re not “out of the woods” yet, so to speak.
