09:15 AM ET 09.10 | The billboard promoting Northwestern quarterback Dan Persa as "Chicago's Heisman candidate" has been replaced by a more general advertisement for NU football, but a school official says that has nothing to do with Persa's delayed return from Achilles' tendon surgery. Mike Polisky, NU's senior associate athletic director for external affairs, told the Tribune the plan always was to take down the Persa billboard, along with another one near ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn., after a month.

Deep Creek, Guido and the rest, how are you guys?? Just wondering and concerned about you all.

I haven't heard from my friends at Possum Kingdom in a couple of days. They've been evacuated repeatedly since May, keeping critical belongings in their cars. It's about 30 miles from me so I'm ok but lots of folks aren't. Fires at Lake Whitney, also about 30 miles away, have been contained. The Bastrop fire SE of Austin is the biggest concern.

Thanks for the concern.

Yeah bastrop is bad. 71 is still shutdown. Have about 1/2 dozen friends I know of that lost their homes.

This is the worst drought I can remember. We've lost a lot of livestock and wildlife due to a lack of nutrition .. and to the fires. Things look bad at and around our hunting ranch in west of Llano. Lots of fawns and yearlings didn't survive. It will take several years to recover.

Large ranches around Possum Kingdom have been decimated because in many cases the fires surrounded the cattle and wildlife. There literally was nowhere to run.

There is no rhyme or reason, we keep getting rain, water has been standing on the lawn now for 2 to 3 weeks, had 8 inches last week, 9 inches the week before, and you guys can't buy any rain. I sure wish we could have sent you some of ours for sure. When my Wife mowed yesterday, she had to mow around the standing water in many many places, ditches full, she mows 8 folks yards, two of them are almost fully under.

I think folks in Texas would be fine with a tropical depression/hurricane coming ashore. That seems to be our only hope right now.

Doing good 0-6. Thanks for your concern. The folks in other parts of the state need thoughts and prayers. Texas has been through hell this year. Always been hot but this is redunkulous.
