Picking up the pieces

LOGAN GARNETT GENERAL MANAGER.
 
The supercell storm that slammed into Uvalde last Thursday night raged only about an hour, but it left weeks’ worth of cleanup and repair in its wake. Everything from mangled roofs to downed limbs to snapped power lines were the result of the high winds and hail that ripped through town, but perhaps the most substantial impact from the storm was a two-day power outage that left thousands of residents in the dark and heat.

‘I really thought my heart would explode’

Only a dad could understand the joys of standing outside with his daughter, watching for hours as she waves and says “Look at me,” every time she essentially does anything other than stand there.  Only a father would
watch over her and wave back, saying, “Good job sweetie” and truly believe that what she is doing is a major accomplishment. And to him, it is a major accomplishment, for that is his daughter – a halfgenetic copy of himself – 
and it is human nature for him to love her unconditionally

and other play equipment were  displaced
