Turns out the volunteer fire departments in the area were having training by the Texas A&M Extension Service in how to get water out of lakes when there is no power for wells, etc. We spoke with them a bit and went on with our day.
On Sunday, they were back again. We weren't really prepared, but decided to fix them a snack. I made hot chocolate and lemonade. Gene opened up his Nutter Butter cookies and some gluten free graham crackers and we set up a table for them. They were very appreciative. They spent their whole weekend training. They are great, giving up personal time at this time of year to prepare themselves to help us in times of need. They deserve huge thanks and appreciation!
They left some hoses out and when they came back we were given an envelope. This was inside. Great guys and gals! Thank you so much! You deserve the awards!!
