It's cooler today, but there's no rain in sight, and the dry wind from tropical storm Lee has set everything on fire again.

There was one nearby in College Station yesterday: Large grass fire under control in CS So many trees are dead, when we have high wind it blows them down into power lines.

And it's worse towards Austin: Catastrophic fires burn thousands of acres, force evacuations across Central Texas
Forest Service spokeswoman Lexi Maxwell said that fire began about 2 p.m. in the Circle D subdivision off Texas 71. It merged with another fire north of there that pushed south and crossed over Texas 21 and Texas 71, Maxwell said. Aerial units estimated that at least 300 homes had been damaged or destroyed by the fire.

Fires Break Out Across Central Texas.

That's pretty much all I've got today.
