Drought and Fires Wreak Havoc in Florida

Wildfires roaring across Interstate 95 in Brevard county have left the backyards of hundreds of homeowners covered in soot, ash and burned trees and shrubs. One man lost his entire collection of antique trucks to the flames. Homeowners tried in vain to water their lawns as the smoke started coming closer to them. The firefighters did the best they could to keep the flames away from homes but there was still alot of damage. Burned up cars, patio furniture, swing sets, everything you normally have in your back yard can burn and melt from the intense heat.
Times like these call for an enormous cleanup effort and it's not even summer yet. The drought here shows no signs of letting up, everyone is trying to conserve water, some people are worried their wells may run dry soon if we don't get some rain. These are unusual weather conditions for this time of year in this part of the country. A sign that we should all be prepared for more unusual weather ahead. Intense heat is what heats up the oceans and brings in those massive hurricanes. Even if you don't plan to stick around for the onslaught you will still be coming back to a mess to clean up afterwards. So now is the time to think about buying that dump trailer before you need it. Even if you don't need it you can be sure there will be someone that would pay to use it. Be sure to read the rest of my articles about which dump trailer to buy in the rest of this blog.
