Wordless Wednesday...That’s No Rain Cloud!!!
Several members have asked if we’d been impacted by the Deer Park fires that has been burning since Sunday at 10 am.
(Sorry for the fuzzy picture but a moving car doesn't make for clear photos. )
This is what we saw out of our car window as we were returning from breakfast Tuesday morning. I wasn’t sure what it was at first...we weren’t forecast to have any rain or fronts coming through.
It then occurred to me that what I saw was the plume of smoke from the fires at the ITC (International Terminals Company) in Deer Park. We’re about 46 miles (over an hour) north and west of where the fires are but could see it clearly today. And it was exactly as described...a plume coming from one source. There are currently 8 tanks still burning.
It was an amazing sight but I do feel so sorry for those families who live in the area near the plant.
