An update on Texas weather goings on.....which, btw...affects me (Rebecca) and Diane (your Newsletter editor) Rain, flood. Followed by more rain and flood. Our roads are washed away (literally!) so now instead of 6 miles to town I've the lovely scenic route of 29 miles to go. Mail is no longer being delivered to the house, but I'm driving to town every few days, so most of our members should not see a slow down in registrations. Internet is a bit hit and miss, but our IP is a diligent company. Diane's place has also flooded quite a bit. Fortunately her mare and foal had the only high and dry stall/place on her property. Lucky them! But with trying to figure all this out, obviously the Spring Drum Beat did not go out. Stay tuned....hopefully (Mother Nature willing) we can get it out in the next week or so! ...
