ALEX.....The First Hurricane of the Season
As you know, my home is just a few miles away from the gulf. Alex, the first hurricane of the season came inland around Brownsville several hundreds of miles away. The wind howled and it rained like the devil here. My grass, trees, shrubs and vegetable garden are all in heaven. God's water is just so much better for them than my watering with chlorinated water.
Did you know that Texas beaches are all open to the public and you can drive your car on the beach. The laws are written so no wealthy people can buy beachfront property and then fence it off so only they can use it. When I lived in Stamford Connecticut we just had a small postage stamp beach because all the wealthy people had bought up all the land along the coast, and then put of fences and high metal gates around their beach estates.
