      Take Care of Texas Tips for The Upcoming Holiday Season Did you know that we produce approximately 25 percent more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day?  I knew we accumulated trash but had no idea it was this much. There are many easy things we can do as we celebrate this holiday season to "Take Care of Texas". Just think how much each home owner or even renters accumulate....   Here are just a couple of ideas to get you started:   1.   Send recycled-content or electronic greeting cards. 2.   Save energy by turning down the heat while you’re away for the holidays. 3.   Give gifts that don’t require a lot of packaging, such as concert tickets or gift cards. 4.   Purchase electronic gifts that are Energy-Star rated. 5.   Buy rechargeable batteries to accompany electronic g...

My Thought Provoker for Today October 13, 2012   This week I had someone ask a question: When I move into my home should I have the locks changed?                                                              My Answer....I highly recommend.....YES Also, if you have a security gate always notify the Fire Department and EMS. They will have the security code to get through the gate. Hopefully you will not ever have to call the EMS or Fire Department, but they need to get through your security gate in case there is an Emergency.         Carl Winters Advanced Home Inspector (TREC) Home and Commercial Inspections Canyon Lake, New Braunfels, San Antonio 830-660-0131

One was Acrocanthosaurus, said to be a meat-eater.                        Never know what you might find in limestone. Who would have ever thought we live in the same area where Dinasours once lived.

                   WATER SAFETY MESSAGE!                         Canyon Lake TX I heard a siren yesterday here at Canyon Lake Texas. My first thought was " oh, oh someone is in trouble out on the lake".  During the summer months when we hear a siren and see an ambulance headed toward the lake this is always our thought. Below is a Water Safety Message I came across posted by  U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Water Safety Message. My Advice: Follow all rules and always practice caution.                                The Message: There is no good way to convey the tragedy in a family that occurs when a loved one drowns. A day of recreation and happiness quickly becomes a day of mourning and sadness for family and friends when anyone drowns. Every life is precious and important, yet a simpl...

Do you live in Comal County and are you a member of Pedernales Electric Cooperative? Planting Trees Requires Planning (Your Landscape) Overgrown trees can be a risk. Please remember when you select and plant a tree, it's important to understand how large the tree will be when it is mature. Example: Note distance from the telephone pole. Allow adequate distance from electric power lines and infrastructure. Avoid hazards by planting trees with overhead power lines in mind and consider a safe distance. *** If you have questions you can visit www.pec.coop/landscaping or call 1-888-554-4732.

    A few weeks ago I did a blog about a Topsy-Turvy Jalapeno Pepper Planter. Here's an update.            So far, so good. If all goes well the next update we will begin to see some blooms. One great thing, if this Topsy -Turvy Jalapeno Pepper Planter works we won't have to worry about the Texas Hill Country white tail deer eating the plants...not unless they can jump to reach the planter that is hanging from the second story baloney. Life is "good" and Life is "fun" living in The Texas Hill Country. We are anxious for spring. First Blog Link:  Topsy-Turvy...Living in The Texas Hill Country Just thinking about moving (San Antonio, Boerne, Canyon Lake,Bulverde, Schertz, New Braunfels or Wimberly), well find yourself a good real estate agent and call me for your Home-Inspection.

Weather Update....February 11, 2012 NEW BRAUNFELS and CANYON LAKE (Texas Hill Country) - Possible Sleet - Texas Hill Country Texas is known for having c r a z y weather. Freezing weather tonight and tomorrow and back up to the 80's next week. Burrrrr! Old Man Winter is making a return to New Braunfels and Canyon Lake (Texas Hill Country). Bringing in some freezing temperatures and a chance for frozen precipitation.  The western edge of a strong arctic cold front entered the area early this morning.. A beautiful clear day but cold. Don't forget to cover your PLANTS, wrap your PIPES and make sure your PETS are secure.       I think Brutus will settle down and sleep on his nice pillow this evening. Stay warm everyone and let's hope it doesn't pinch back the new blooms on some of our trees...

LET IT RAIN....Texas Hill Country Keep Your Fingers Crossed We could see some ominous clouds for a few minutes this morning before the thick, dense fog set in here at Canyon Lake TX. Keep your fingers crossed; the weather spokesperson, Storm Tracker Weather Cast, said there is a good chance we will get anywhere from 1-3 inches of rain this evening North of San Antonio in the Texas Hill Country (Boerne, Bulverde, Canyon Lake, Spring Branch and New Braunfels).  Unfortunately everyone still has red eyes and runny nose from the high levels of Mountain Cedar that is in the air. Maybe the rain will settle down the Mountain Cedar. Everyone please keep your fingers crossed that we get this much needed rain here in Texas.
