Don’t forget the RE Roundup this weekend in Fredericksburg . I’m sure they have electrical power, which Houstonians will appreciate about now.
By the way, how did those of you with solar panels or wind turbines fare during and after the storm?

Free Water @ Roundup
That's Right! The Roundup Committee has been working hard to find a solution to plastic bottled water. We are striving to have less waste than ever and thus have eliminated 'plastic' bottled water from the event. We are asking that you to either purchase on site a souvenir stainless steel water container or BYOC (bring your own cup). Thanks to Pure Quality Water for providing the set up for onsite free filtered water.
We need your help...
Please, please, please... we need volunteers. It takes more help than ever to make this event happen. Spread the word to your friends and neighbors, volunteering has it's advantages.
