No Fireworks for North Texas

We Texas and Oklahoma types are used to having the occasional grass fire when the rains don't come, but what's going on right now is an anomaly. It's not supposed to be this warm or this windy at the end of December. Wildfires jumping roads is something that happens in Montana, not suburban Arlington. Where's the next Woody Guthrie to chronicle these windswept infernos in song?

I don't know whether to blame God, Satan, Mother Nature, or some flap-happy butterfly in Mongolia, but whoever controls the weather is clearly still quite pissed off at us.

Mr. Butterfly, why do you hate America?!?
