It's a Nexeo Solutions Plant and they make fracking chemicals. No one in the Dallas media wanted to touch that I guess. Sad.

Channel 4 news pre-empted regular programming for hours with the camera trained on the fire.  Dumb.

Saw the smoke cloud all the way from the Neiman Marcus building in Las Colinas. Criminy.

I assumed it was secessionists and tea partiers protesting the EPA.

This explains the cloud of smoke I saw on my way home.  I just assumed the breeze was blowing it down from Colorado.

@DCNeathery @Dallas_Observer In the beginning of Zombieland, the main character is in Garland. AND we're out of Twinkies. Coincidence?!
