$15M Ranch: Dog on Pickup Not Included

1385 FM 1887, Hempstead, TX 77445

Yours for just 15 million dollars. Okay so I doubt the dog comes with the property. Probably not the truck or the horse, either.

You do get to keep these lovely tire tracks, though:

And this creepy cabin in the woods.

    You sure would get plenty of countryside and wildlife for your dollar. But ya know… it would be nice to see more than one outside shot of the house. Maybe that dog is a really good guard dog?

  2. Well-watered land would be a treasure in Texas – and that’s certainly one fine-looking chunk of the outdoors they’ve got going on, there. Perhaps the listing agent knows that prospective buyers will be more interested in the land than anything about the house? It is lovely.

    @anodean: Is this true in eastern Texas, too? This site is around 40 miles northwest of Houston, which I’ve always thought of as a very humid location.

  4. @Emerald63: You reveal my ignorance: I’ve obviously been visualizing the entire southwest as a giant open-air pottery kiln punctuated by tornado storms. My bad. :)

    @anodean: Sooo… you haven’t been there either? Guess we both missed the boat, er, prairie schooner on that one, lol. As a man (a Texan, even) once said, “I misremembered” you being from Texas. But no, that woulda been Denita Two-Dragons. Further, I suppose one can have a drought anywhere and heaven knows that’s certainly been true of central and western Texas for quite some tie now. I’d say our misrememberations are about equal. Sooo… it’s a tie. Right? :D

    @Emerald63: A couple of months ago only 3 out of Texas’s 254 counties (Newton, Orange and Jasper, all in East Texas) were the only ones not listed as in catastrophic drought conditions. That’s probably changed because I don’t think it has rained in Texas since then either.

    Rain dances done twice daily.

    @Rivergirl: I’m so confused… I’ve been hearing about lots and lots of rain in Texas in the last 2-3 weeks. I know it takes a lot over a long time to end a drought (or even make a dent in it), but with that amount (at least in some places) I would have thought the word “catastrophic” might have been downgraded to, say, “severe.” Either way, it’s still bad, but I thought not quite as extreme before the last few weeks.

    Have I misunderstood the weather reports? Is it still “catastrophic” in the sense that there’s been absolutely no significant amounts of rain?

    Also, it’s nice to see new commenters here. :)

  8. Welcome, Rivergirl. :D

    I’ve not been following current events very well, but surely a downpour on parched land is yet another catastrophe – hoping better for you; rain-dances in moderation, eh. ;)
