I never heard of the word frac and now its everywhere in our town and in our county. We see men in fast food places with new tee shirts printed with the words FRAC TECH. Big trucks up and down the highway with large equipment heading for drilling sites. Yes folks we have an oil boom going on and we don't have any land to lease out for the big bucks the oil companies are paying. We'll have to pay more for everything so be prepared the news paper tells us. They (whoever they is) have learned how to drill through shale so they can drill twice as deep as the old oil wells. We hear people are paying off thier farms and ranches with the money they are making from leasing their land. Who would have ever though our little town would have a three story motel and be filled up so that people have to use the little older two. Already they are working long hours on another new one in front of the first new one. We are getting two small new strip malls and a new buffet. Duplexs are on every vacant lot from the Toyota plant craze that didn't pan out as well as landlords planned. Now they are being rented and even older houses are in demand. It great, its exciting but what happens if the oil plays out? Will there be vacant buildings everywhere? Will we be in the middle of a ghost town?
