Have you done everything possible to increase the chance that you, your loved ones and your home will survive a fire? Even some relatively simple things you can do will increase this chance. Every residence or business should have an address visible to first responders. If you don’t have one, you can call 830-868-4266 to get one. Any vegetation overhanging roofs should be cleared away - preferably at least 15 feet from the roof.

The 3rd Annual Blanco Western Showcase took place on the grounds of Buggy Barn Museum November 7-9, and it went off with a bang! We had people from all over the area come join us for a fun-filled weekend with more entertainment than you could imagine. For the great admission price, you could experience every single one of the entertainers; tour the museum, look at the vendors, take carriage rides, look at the future of the old west town and more. The lineup of entertainment was extraordinary!

The light turned green, we both turned right towards town. I was going 35 mph, but the trooper sped up going past the Shell station (no emergency lights on).
