The Stormy Weekend

With local area rainfall from 2 to 4 inches and high winds and lightning damaging power lines, electrical equipment and blowing down trees and tree limbs early Saturday morning…it was a
rough weekend. Lampasas Radio was a part of it, with both of our radio transmitters knocked out and some of our protective surge equipment rendered useless by the high surges. We were
able to restore service by mid-Saturday morning, thanks to a back -up transmitter and some replacement parts we happened to have on hand. But, like many other friends and neighbors, we’ll get busy and it will all be back to normal soon.

The disrupting storm late Friday night and early Saturday morning sent most of the campers at Brook Park’s weekend campout event scurrying back home, and it caused Hancock Park’s Golf
Course to close down – in spite of the tournament that was scheduled for Saturday. Water was still over bridges this morning and the report from the pro shop this morning was – “We are still closed.”

In spite of the storm in Lampasas, the bicycles of the Texas 4000 ATLAS Ride still came into town on Saturday morning and the local 25 mile ride did go on. Dianna Hodges, VP of Vision
Lampasas (far right), gave a check to Courtney Becker (center) and Smith Ketterer (left) or $1,500 for the Texas 4000 Ride for Cancer on Saturday, at the Ride Finish.

The donation is from proceeds that were raised from Vision Lampasas’s Hillacious Bike Tour,
that was held on April 8 this year.The dedication of the new “Cruisn’ Key” mural on the
Stoney’s Liquor building on S. Key Ave. was able to take place as rainfall held off for the event. This is the 13th mural that the art committee of the Vision Lampasas group has done in  Lampasas. It’s but a handful of dedicated locals that does an awful lot of work to adorn our town with these very visual flavors of our history and character.
