Waco Town Crier – June 2024

The month of May has surely done wonders for Lake Waco. There has been so much rain in Texas they had to let water out of Lake Waco. Last year a drought….this year things are flooded. Texas weather- never a dull moment!

A few of our graduates have been in some of the bad weather that has hit Texas. Cathey White Land and her husband experienced some yard, fence and tree damage in the fierce winds that Houston experienced. They were out of power but fortunately had a generator.  

Malissa Ruth Starnes Baugh and her husband experienced tree, fence and yard damage in the Temple tornado. They were without power for several days. The Texas heat and humidity is pretty miserable without power. The great thing is neither of the houses were damaged nor were their families.

Sharon McCarthy Odell had a lot of tree damage in her area during the storms that went through the Dallas area only a few days ago. Her house was also spared.

All of you who live in the Houston, Temple, Dallas area from whom we have not heard, we hope you have had no damage or minimal damage only. Any damage is disturbing…especially at our ages. Thank heavens we have not heard of any lives of our graduates who were harmed from the storms. However, more severe storms are expected tonight and tomorrow ……so keep your fingers crossed and pray for all in harm’s way!
