Satan, or one of his lesser imps, creating mischief in Oklahoma?

A very interesting photo from the Daily Oklahoman on Tuesday, showing one of the wildfires that is snarling highways and burning out an occasional subdivision. We almost missed this and then we noticed the raised arms and the (gasp!) undoubtedly bifurcated tail.

(The more we stare at the photo the less certain we become that we're joking around here.)

The fire danger in all parts of Oklahoma and Texas is extremely high. We're a dozen inches of rain or so underneath our annual average, and everything is dry, dry, dry. So concerned are we that we are watering front and back lawns today in the off chance that a fire might break out in the neighborhood. Whether it would actually help, who knows? If we get a hard freeze (also unlikely) the Oklahomilist is going to look very foolish - but it wouldn't be the first time.

You know how we like to connect the dots and see the big picture. This photo makes us wonder: maybe those natural gas geysers (ongoing) were the portal through which this busy yellow fellow passed to create a little hell on earth?

Or not.
