Well, you just have to love the folks in Waller County. They really know how to look after one another when times get tough. The Houston Chronicle has a nice article this morning about Gerald and Cathy Powell, who opened up the Waller County Fairgrounds and took in at first just one horse, but now the number of animal evacuees they are housing has grown to some 50 dogs, 20-30 cats, a couple of cows, a pig, and a fluctuating number of horses.
All of these animals didn’t come with feed and supplies, of course, so neighbors and friends have been making regular deliveries of the necessities. The animals are housed in nice stalls and cages until they can go back home. Their owners are sleeping at the fairgrounds in their cars or whatever else they can find. The temperature is supposed to climb back close to 100 degrees today. It won’t be very comfortable to sleep in a car tonight, I’m afraid. Here’s hoping all of these folks — and their animals — can return to an intact home soon. Be sure to read the complete story on the Houston Chronicle’s web site. It will do your heart good.
