August and I went to check out the spillway at nearby White Rock Lake after a big rain.
In summer, this area was bone dry and lifeless.
This day it was like Niagra Falls! Many people like us came out to see the power of something larger than themselves and the whole place had a great vibe.
At a bakery/coffee shop afterward I calmed a cranky barrista by recommending that he visit after his shift was over.
Some folks in our urban setting forget that this wonderful lake is right nearby.
