West, TX

West, Texas

Yesterday this was a small town to the north of Waco, TX.

No one knew much about it.

Population about 2400.

People are a close community, mostly Czech decent.

Last night, the fertilizer plant caught fire and exploded about 8 pm.

Reports are rolling in continuously.

Over 100 injured.

5-15 presumed dead.

Over 140 injured.

Over 179 injured.

Over 200 injured.

All First Responders are missing.

Two firemen have been confirmed dead.

Last I heard, four Firemen, one EMT, and one Policeman were dead.

When this plant blew, it took almost half the town off the map.

It used to have 3 schools, a nursing home, a small apartment complex.

Today it has one school.

No nursing home

No apartment complex.

More than 50 homes are gone.

Nothing but ashes.

Many other have severe damages.

This explosion was felt all the way to Amarillo, Texas.

The explosion registered a 2.5 on the Richter scale in Amarillo.

The mushroom cloud was seen in south Dallas,
which is almost an hour and a half away.

Please keep this town in your prayers.

The Tomb

It's that time of year.

The birds are out chirping, building nests.

Grass and trees turning green.

Roses,daffodils, tulips and irises blooming.

Snails eating the irises (and anything else that is green).

Cats making babies. 

Love and life is in the air.

Well, except for one creature.

The stinking water bug, roach or whatever you call those nasty bugs. 

I spray my house outside up to the windowsills. 

Around the windows and doors.

Around the porches, the steps. 

The baseboards. 

The walls. 

The flowerbeds.

And still they come........

BIG and small. 

Flying and non-flying.

To die. 

In my bathroom. 

The Tomb.

The Bug Tomb.
