Little Ozma firefighter

If you don't like the weather, wait a moment ...

Tornadoes followed by flooding ... we've been dry for three days now, so all the dead winter underbrush is dry enough to burn but the ground itself is still to soaked to support four wheel drive brush units -- so, naturally, we've been getting field fires that have to be fought the hard way. We lost one of our two brush trucks when it got into too-deep water during a medical assist, but hopefully it can be repaired before the ground dries out enough to utililize it again.
