I noticed this was changed from "... in North Texas" to "... across Texas" but if I am not mistaken, aren't all of the mentioned counties in North Texas? It seems to be sensationalistic to claim it is across Texas. --SVTCobra 00:47, 30 January 2008 (UTC)Reply

Burnet County is more Central Texas, and Nolan and Callahan counties are considered to be closer to West Texas. When people around here say "North Texas", they usually mean the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, though I realize other people have different definitions. ~Planoneck~ 00:55, 30 January 2008 (UTC)Reply
I guess a couple of the counties do fall outside of the area highlighted by Wikipedia as North Texas, I am just concerned that it sounds like the whole state is on fire. --SVTCobra 01:03, 30 January 2008 (UTC)Reply
Yeah, I guess it does sound a bit sensationalistic to use the word "across". Go ahead and change it if you want. ~Planoneck~ 01:12, 30 January 2008 (UTC)Reply
I changed it to "wide area", hope you approve. --SVTCobra 01:48, 30 January 2008 (UTC)Reply
