Hill & Johnson Barnett Activity

Not sure what is happening on this site. It appears that at Hwy 174 near the intersection of FM 933, there is a commercial development under way.
Mountains of gas pipeline have started accumulating at the new Tejas Oilfield facility just south of Cleburne, on Hwy 174.

Aftermath of Friday's Storms on FM 933

The late afternoon shadows make it hard to see the uprooted and flattened trees. The J-G Ranch was littered with downed timber. Fortunately it all appeared to be confined to open pasture lands. Scroll down and click on pictures to increase their size and clairty.

Mother Nature's Fury Unleashed

Fortunately, the only damage I saw in the aftermath of yesterday's violent storms were these downed trees on the J-G Ranch, just south of Blum. These pictures were taken from FM 933 where either a tornado or strong straight line winds crossed from SW to NE.

Beautiful, but DRY in Vaughn - Aquilla

Vaughn Baptist Church. I'll just bet that the Devil takes a 'beatin', at Wednesday night prayer meetin'. The sign doesn't show a time for Wednesday night services, but I believe it's safe to say they have 'em!

Should see 3-D seismic activity beginning around the lake during the first quarter of 2007. A permit agent for Polaris LTD. said that Lake Aquilla makes up almost 80% of the shoot. The Corps of Engineer's are slow to complete the permitting process, or so I'm told. Much more 'red tape' involved than individual leasing.

Aquilla appears at Lowest Level in Years

Aquilla is in the same shape as ALL other lakes in North Texas. Remaining many feet below normal levels. The drought continues!
UPDATE: Friday's ominous weather brought strong storms and tornados to the area, but the rain most definitely raised the lake level. However, we are still far below normal.

Pray for RAIN!

Growing Infrastructure

Pipelines, flowlines, gathering lines.
The activity continues to develop. Saw these heading southbound out of Rio Vista on Hwy 174. Lots of pipe has aleady gone down in this area.

Why did the pipe go under the road? To get to the other side, of course. This line will go under Hwy 174. Not as much of a challenge as shoving ETP's 42" line under I-35.

A recent Dale Resources flyer for leasing city lot's in Ft. Worth. This was published several weeks ago, so it may have expired. Four-Sevens offered us $500 and 25% for our lot.
