I'm a liberal pagan living in West,Texas..yes that West,Texas

Wednesday, June 12, 2013


 this is what is left of Anissa's family home. She watched it burn down on TV.
 the house further down from Anissa's home, that her sister used to live in.

 what's left of the fertilizer plant.
 going down Robert's Street to the fertilizer plant. This is the first time I've seen the site..and I've driven down that road a hundred times and never even knew what that was..I think someone told me it was a fertilizer plant but it just never registered with me..Anissa has told me often enough about the leakage and the tests they preformed on the soil at her old house..Both her parents died from cancer..and very very weird types of cancer..Wish I could remember what it was, she told me but my head doesn't hold new stuff.

 Inky and Anissa's 2 cars..
 the fertilizer plant is down on the left..Anissa's home is right where the truck is on the right.
 fertilizer plant
 what's left.

 what they have started moving from the site.

 some auto's and trucks and fire trucks were complete damaged..some not.


 field of corn down from the site, but that's a piece of something that got blew that far.

 Anissa and Ink's 2 automobiles.
 That's what is left of her family home.

 house down the road..

So sad. My mind has trouble wrapping around the destruction.

Yep it was all over the news when it happened but now the world has moved on, yet West is still left to pick up the pieces. From what you write about West, you guys will rise from the ashes bigger and better than before. So sorry for all the losses your town endured Jackie.xx

Better the family home than the family, things can be replaced, as many in West know, people cannot.

I know lots of farmers who've used fertilizer and ended up with weird cancers too. It's amazing what they can get away with selling to us dumb humans.

What a mess. I hope Anissa can go to a place she can call home someday.

Wow, pretty devastating photos, eh? Thank goodness they all survived it safely.


and her family home was there many many many years before the fertilizer plant..Fema has jerked them around so badly I want to punch someone.
