The small town of Wimberley, Texas is no stranger to flash floods, but even trees that stood through centuries were no match for this latest storm.

From TEEX Cyber Security -

So many hacks, so little time to cover them all. I thought this one was important to share because - coffee. Anything that impairs your ability to buy or drink coffee is indisputably a very bad thing.

From the +Texas A&M University Veterinary Emergency Team

As Texas Task Force 1 continues their operations in Wimberley, we are reminded of just how difficult a task the canine search teams face.

Phreedom, a search and rescue canine belonging to Task Force member, Ronnie Perry, made a visit to the VET on Tuesday to have a minor injury evaluated.

The environment these four-legged heroes work in with their handlers is hazardous, but they are truly committed to their work.

Task Force members are making helicopter slings for moving giant sandbags. Do you know how to make an eye splice in a cable?
They do.
