1/17/2013 Daily Image: SoCo Capitol

Toward the end of our 2,500 mile Route 66 road trip in 2011, we came upon this uniquely Texas establishment on Interstate 10 out in West Texas.  While it is not as common in Texas as it is in Oklahoma to see oil derricks scattered across the landscape, we do encounter them from time-to-time. Truck…

Upside-Down Plane Tornado Damage, Allen, Texas 4-10-08 On this day in 2008, I had been covering extensive tornado damage in Plano, Texas for the local paper when a neighbor mentioned there had been another tornado touch-down in Allen.
