When it’s all about mom …
And in case you run out of ideas on how to celebrate mom. Here are 10.
When you can be the judge …
Texas Monthly thinks H-E-B’s True Texas BBQ is the best BBQ chain in the state. The BBQ concept started at H-E-B’s Mueller-Austin store in 2013. Today, H-E-B runs 14 True Texas BBQ restaurants throughout the state, and one of those locations is right here at Table 620 inside the H-E-B Lakeway.
When you wonder why the floodgates aren’t open …
It’s not that simple. The LCRA says the Colorado River below Austin is already bank full, so opening the Mansfield Dam to flood it with water from Lake Travis is not an option. Lake Travis is currently at 104 percent capacity and could rise to 685 feet, an increase of two feet in the next one to two days.
15 million …
That’s how many gallons of water per minute were moving through the Pedernales River on Wednesday, its highest level since the May 2015 deadly Blanco River flood event.
When you keep your seat …
Incumbent Sandy Cox won the race for Lakeway mayor and will retain her seat. She will be working alongside three new Lakeway City Council members: Sanjeev Kumar, Doug Howell, and Gretchen Vance.
When you suffer from post-drought paranoia …
On Wednesday, LTL’s Cathy Hale tried to figure out how long Lake Travis will stay full.
When you’re featured …
Few homes compare to this one-story Texas Craftsman on a large, level lot in old Lakeway.
