Last week Texas was hit with a once in a lifetime winter weather event that broke records, almost completely wiped out our power grid and left many families without electricity and water in single digit temps for days upon days.
Today is the first day that we will move out of the 30s in over a week. To say that I am excited to see the sun is an understatement!! I took a walk in the snow in the balmy 34 degrees and just thanked God for the sunshine and melting snow and ice.
Many are still without water as their pipes have burst, their wells have exploded or are under a boil warning from the city water.
It was a disaster here.
The grocery stores are now receiving trucks of food and the stories of how Texans have helped their neighbors are overflowing in the community.
Texas hospitality is something we are known for here and the stories of people loving their neighbors is inspiring and shows the resilience of friendship and the Texas way. It’s a great place to live and the people make it even better!
There are many still in need and I wanted to share some of the local information for helpful resources for those still in need.
