I went to bed early on Friday only to be awakened around 2:00 a.m. by wicked winds. I was ready though I had packed two suitcases and our important papers and placed them in the car in case the power went out or the roof blew off, we could go to a hotel.
All-day Saturday the winds blew like crazy they got to 52 mph but at least it was not as bad as in some other cities in Texas.
This weekend I decided to take a break from the internet, perhaps I should have stayed away from cable television as well. My DVR is 93 percent full...I do not know why I bother to record programs that I then do not have time to watch. That is my one gripe against Spectrum...they do not offer unlimited DVR recording like YouTube TV does.
I did not go online until this evening and of course, checked El Zócalo for news first and was shocked at what I saw as it had only been posted 1 hour earlier. Upon reading it I immediately went to the online edition of 830Times (a webpage that masquerades as our newspaper) and saw they had posted the news today and updated it with a picture of the victim.
I am still in shock to have read of something that just does not happen in Del Rio...a 12-year-old boy was killed when some individuals shot up his house in a drive-by killing him. https://830times.com/news-del-rio-boy-dies-in-drive-by-shooting/
I can not imagine what deranged individuals did this and the police still do not have any suspects. My heart grieves for his poor parents and family. Del Rio is growing too fast and we are starting to have many big-city problems.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
