There is a saying around town that we now know things are getting back to normal after Hurricane Harvey. Evidence of regular is as follows:
The popcorn machine and coffee pot are back in operation at the ACE Hardware store.
The lights at Alister and Avenue C are now working.
The Belt Sander Races are on again at the Gaff. The truck in the foreground is the Gaff delivery vehicle or a chicken coop. No one knows for sure.
Here is a photo of the race contestants.
Here is the track. Notice the extension cords running the length of the path. That’s so the belt sanders can keep going.
The spectators are fueling up for an afternoon of racing. There is music as well. The one thing that is missing is the roof. Last year there was a roof.
The announcers stand.
A warning to parents about rowdy kids.
A bold statement but as far as I know totally true.
One last look at the contestants.
