Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

It was 'round midnight this morning when power was restored in our Northwest Dallas neighborhood, which had been illuminated throughout the stormy night by Dallas police cruiser spotlights; congregated neighbors said the officers were poking around for a possible prowler attempting to make the most of the blackout. On the other hand, it wasn't anything a few candles, a tall glass of bourbon and a backyard patio couldn't remedy.

Others were more inclined toward getting some work done; hence, this photo from our old friend Justin Terveen, who promises more to come. Hey, so does the radar. Really looking forward to that 101-degree high promised for Saturday. Oh, and speaking of photo ops, take one guess where Schutze is right now. C'mon, you can do it ...

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.
