This is my favorite time of year. Everything is green, leaves are still on the trees, the days are warm and sunny while the nights are cool. It’s the perfect time to sleep with your windows open and I love to do that.
Sleeping with open windows in the Barnett Shale is hazardous to your health.
My friend lives right next to a Chesapeake Energy gas well. She slept with her window open last night and paid for it with a bloody nose all day long today.
A resident of Argyle has the same problem as stated in a comment at the ABCAlliance blog.
I think this is an actionable item. Our enjoyment of our property has been diminished because it is now hazardous to our health to sleep with our windows open.
Another economic impact from the Barnett Shale: we will never get that break from our electric bill that we once enjoyed this time of year.
