As they are trying to recover in Wimberley, Rhonda Rodriguez says if she had waited another couple of minutes, she wouldn’t have made it out safely. She got her laptop and her Bible but wasn’t able to convince her cat to come. One of her neighbors said they are piling everyone’s stuff together so people can look for their things in one place.
One positive story from the tragedy in Wimberley: One family’s house was flooded and a military storage box with all kinds of treasured memories inside was missing when they got back into the house. They thought they’d never see it again but it was found 19 miles away in San Marcos. Everything inside was safe.
