Looking Death In The Eye Without Blinking

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



I just finished reading a great story on the WFAA-TV website about Nina Pham. You might remember her as one of the Fort Worth, Texas nurses who was infected with Ebola after caring for a patient at her hospital. Pham, along with other doctors and medical professionals, were selected jointly as the 'Person of the Year' by Time Magazine in 2014. Click the WFAA.com link below to read more about this remarkable woman.

Dallas Fog On Monday Morning

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



Early this week I posted a picture of downtown Dallas that was taken from an airplane on Monday morning during a fog event. While that picture was pretty cool, the one above showing a closer view of what that fog looked like from the top of the Bank of America building in downtown is even better. While it is not unusual for the DFW area to get fogged in from time to time, on Monday there were some really cool pictures taken while it was happening.

Texas Windmills Both Present & Past

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



Growing up back in the 1960's I never envisioned the changes that have taken place in windmills in Texas. In the picture above it's easy to see why our grandchildren will have a different image in their heads of what a windmill is in the future. I grew up in rural West Texas and the only windmills we saw back then were the old fashion type. I must admit though those huge new windmills that produce electricity are pretty cool to look at too.

Peaceful Sunset On Lake Scarborough

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



The State of Texas is filled with hundreds of small, medium and large lakes. The one pictured above is Lake Scarborough located south of Abilene and Northeast of San Angelo. Like many others, I find it peaceful watching the sunset while sitting near the shorelines of Texas lakes. I've never been to Lake Scarborough, but I should put it on my list of places to visit.

Sundown Cam Image South Padre Island

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



I just checked the current weather conditions on South Padre Island, Texas. It's 72 degrees under cloudy skies. Maybe a bit too cold to go swimming in the Gulf of Mexico today, but a nice long walk on the beach would feel wonderful. Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world have visited South Padre Island over the years and most of them come back often.
