After 6 years of calling out those who need to be called out, we took some down time, and apparently that was all we needed to do to win a Best Of. We're a little confused but flattered none the less.
Our vote for Best Blog still goes to Durango.
And if you want to know WHY this blog was started, read our very first post - Why a blog?

Don't worry about YOUR plans, we're messing with the river up here.
In other words, no matter how you read the new article and whether you agree with it or disagree, it should at least convince you that major urban floods have a lot more to do with decisions made by people than acts of God.

“They had private consultants they had hired from Halff Associates and Freese and Nichols, all these guys that are heavily involved in the [Trinity] toll road project and everything, just to work on this small little bicycle bridge project.”

I'm encouraged by the actions taken today by the Texas Water Development Board that finds a conflict does exist between Region C & Region D Water Planning Groups.
Region D has presented an abundance of information to the TWDB which demonstrated the devastating effects the Marvin Nichols reservoir would have on East Texas. I'm grateful to the Board for hearing these concerns and their actions to promote a resolution.
We must be ever vigilant on this issue. Region C has demonstrated they have little incentive or interest to work with us and I fear the force of government could still be used to take East Texas water, land, resources, and more. This issue is far from resolved, but positive steps have been taken.
