At one time there was an equivalent of the Icehouse in every city in the United States. It had a bar, served beer, and had domino tables, pool tables and served both men and women. It was a social center where the gossip of the day prevailed and recreation was offered.
It rained about one inch yesterday here in New Braunfels. Although we are still in a drouth, it was a welcome respite. We have gone through many months without rainfall. We all hope that this is a change in the weather that will continue.
