Potential ill effects? Understatement much.

WATER: Fracking sucks more than you think and it really blows too.

I wish Texas cared about it’s citizens.

My late husband was from Iowa, maybe we should have settled there. I wouldn’t be living this nightmare now.

The only relatively safe place I can see is Washington State.

I’m glad you said that, I spent hours this week googling where in the US is safe from this hell I’m living. I wasn’t able to see what I was looking for. If I could, I’d pack up, and leave this town today. I’m so afraid that no matter where I go, it will happen again.

The compressor has been so loud lately, it rattles my windows. I tried to sit on my back patio, but my throat and eyes started burning. I’m reaching my breaking point.

Sound meter + video = evidence. Documentation is your ticket out.

No where is safe but if I could, I would go to Washington or Oregon. Lots of water there. But there are LNG export terminals so…
