We're under a tornado watch till 11 p.m., and Oncor's still working to get power to some 80,000 homes still in the hot, sticky dark. So, fittingly, we'll end this long, wet week with an image provided by Web Mayfield, taken yesterday on Bryan Parkway just east of Beacon Street. "Limbs, garbage cans and garbage flowing down the street had jammed between the two cars and made a sort of dam," he writes in an e-mail sent to Unfair Park. Sounds delicious.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
