Weather Poem

Wonderful snowflakes
Echoing the exaltation of their bright and vibrant snow
A hummingbird is darting
Trees are wearing scarlet gowns and golden crowns and bits of them are falling
Enchanted things like
Rivers and streams

Live Oak, Buda Elementary Campus

Onion creek

With all that rain last week, Onion creek now has water flowing in it which makes great swimming for some of us.

Funky Buda

I loved what this blog did for the school board issue by creating a dialogue of ideas for people to voice their opinions about the decision to either relocation or renovate Buda Elementary school.

Based on the lower campus being in the flood plain and new Fema building laws the district decided not to expand on the lower campus. Instead the school board proposed a bond to renovate both campuses.
The community passed the $3.6 million dollar Bond in November.

We'll look forward to seeing how they can improve this great school in downtown Buda.

Like "Keeping Austin Weird", I still like the idea of "Keeping Buda Funky" by supporting local businesses and appreciating the history of this sweet little town before it disappears.
I'd like to use this blog to share photos of the people and places that make Buda funky.
