A night of mystery

On a cold, blustery night I made my way to the warm and cozy Rialto Theater in downtown Aransas Pass to watch John Bishop’s Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.

Where were you? What were you doing?

Certain occasions cause us to remember details and our reactions as though they just occurred. Harvey is one of those events with unending accounts…those who evacuated, those who rode it out, those who were miles inland, those who were unexpectedly flooded, those who lost everything, those who volunteered their help, those who still are trying to recover…

What is your plan?

The 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season is here! June 1 was the official beginning date but there have not been any tropical developments yet as June ends. Those who lived in the path of Hurricane Harvey in the North Bay area in 2017 know the devastation caused by the winds, storm surge, tornadoes and flooding and may have adjusted their personal evacuation plans as a result.

Diagnosis Day, Ahh, yes, I remember it well’ish

Spring cleaning on the coast

Spring weather usually inspires mere mortals to clean their homes inside and out. Windows are washed and opened, winter grime is removed from walls and floors while closets and drawers are rearranged. Trees and bushes are trimmed, flower beds are prepared for new growth and gardens are tilled and planted. Piles of unwanted items and debris appear along city curbs and country roads. Throughout the country, local governments and volunteer groups then begin their community spring cleaning. Our coastal communities have the added concern of keeping the waterways clear of trash to protect the marine environment and provide safe and pleasing surroundings for the many guests who enjoy spending time at our beaches and on our bays.
