Texas Drought

leave a comment »

I covered a national news story recently for the New York Times about the Spicewood Beach community running out of water. The private community near Austin has its own well that was gifted to the LCRA to manage years back. Now the community is having water trucked in to meet its needs. I gathered a generally bitter feeling from the residents who were very friendly, but obviously unhappy with the impeding stress of their situation. You can read Manny Fernandez story about the Texas Drought and see some of my images too.
