These conditions were evident even where there was no active drilling in progress. We could only surmise that nothing would be done, or could be done as long as the wells were producing and trucks continued to use the access roads to the storage tanks.
I am quite aware of the need for the wells for gas production. But it seems that particular need is messing up our entire area. It has long been my belief that the Brazos Valley was so special to God, that when He had completed creation, there was a large bag of beauty left that had not been used, so He just dropped it on us and left it. Now look what our demand for fuel has done to it!
I know, I know, I am just “whistlin’ Dixie,” but I really wish there was another way to fuel progress. The “arms I bear” against it are indeed brittle and may break, but my fingers and my keyboard will survive to the end.
