Wondering about Texas

Last winter we spent most of it in Florida. We traveled to South Texas for the last two weeks of our winter, making us officially "Winter Texans".
The reason was to check it out for the coming winter. We decided to book Texas for this winter and are now asking ourselves, is Texas going to need to budget water use this winter? Is water going to be a problem. and by becoming another Texan will we be asking them to pull a rabbit out of a hat to keep us in drinking water?
Maybe we should head for Tuson! How about Dry Florida, or Quartsite? Is there anywhere south that escaped this years water problems?

Water aint your big problem in Texas right now. I am curious if the state is going to BURN DOWN...... I know that Texas is BIG and I arsen't sure where all the fires are and I would hope that they would have them out by wintertime. One word of caution. I would check very closley where the fires are and not go there anytime soon. Past that ,,,,,,, Texas is a pretty place and if you dont like the weather where you are,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, hang around a few minutes and it will usually change ......lol......
This advise will cost you ten cents and you must pay me the next time you see me............ if you read it and dont use it you owe me five cents anyway.......

When you see one of our troops in uniform, shake hands with them and say ''THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE TO THIS NATION''............ then give them a hug.

See HERE for a real-time check of fire locations and more info - just click on the particular fire icon of interest.

We are in the RGV now... no problems here at all. Temps are finally cooling off, too. We're at the Mission Bell / Trade Winds RV Resort in Mission.

You shouldn't have any problems with water down the Donna way.

Even here just South of Houston, we are on water restrictions. That means we can only water our lawns between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. Monday and Wednesday for my address.

We'll have rain by the time you get this way, I hope.

As long as your not having to water your grass or wash your RV you should be fine. If you are in an RV park I don't think either should be a problem
