Cool SA dusty and dirty

not sure if this was added but it can be umm, how to say it...dusty? not sure how to say it but my allergies here and generally around Texas bother me more than other parts of the country. Perhaps it is from all the fracking and energy production from west TX combined with low rain totals? DFW, for me, was even worse - tons of fracking activity. Back on the dirty topic, yes there's lots of tagging, mostly closer into the city. We live in Leon Springs area (down I-10 between SA and Boerne) and love it. Sometimes there is a mattress or something on the side of the road, more so closer into the city, but it is the exception and not the norm. Nothing to worry about....unless you live around 410 and are VERY picky.

Enjoy your little oasis out in the boonies while it looks like pristine country, it won't be for much longer as more and more people move out that way for the "I want to work in a big city, but live in the small town" lifestyle.

Default Heh,Heh,

Very impressive, great imformation, Rancho...for residents of south Texas... There are many, a lot of chemical vapors that can cause respiratory distress.

Bad stuff. Contradictory naivete otherwise entered here is of great amusement to me.

Progress is a great thing, hopefully nothing but good will be the result of all of this fracking.

This is valuable information Rancho Drive. Nothing good ecologically can come of the chemicals injected into the ground and the effects that may or will come from this form of ground pollution to the pristine unpopulated countryside of deep South Texas.
In news reports.
I have seen the claimed ill-effects from nearby residents as the result of fracking in on programs from north of here nearer the Dallas area, east. Nothing is perfect, something will fail in this technology.

I know the enormous underground Salt domes where I have worked a long time ago , created in Louisiana and in Texas along the gulf coastlines -created for the storage of natural gas (gigantic subterranean voids created by water injection to create brine from salt by gas companies )- do cause sinkholes. Not a good thing either.
Houses , streets and retail stores will and do disappear into the ground. That is just from an underground void ?

"Water Pollution Lawyers" lol yeah they don't have any financial interest in saying that fracking causes any issues. None whatsoever.

Why must you post in such a confusing manner?

Default Extremely condensed,

Information is too lengthy to quote here. So I have condensed it into a more manageable entry.
Sorry for any confusion caused by such abbreviated posting.
