I spent the better part of yesterday on the water at Possum Kingdom. A friend and I were out there doing what we could to save his home from the fire. Once we had done all we could there, we contacted other residents, and grabbed some items from their houses while we could enter from the water; pictures and keepsakes that couldn't be replaced. I shot photos while driving around the lake and they are pretty powerful.
