  1. Tom and Jerry's would be my choice. Lot's of screens, a good bar and decent food. Any place on the Island that doesn't use RO water will have that issue. It is a chronic issue here and usually worse in the summer. This letter explains what they are doing and why it tastes worse than usual right now. I haven't drank unfiltered water here for years. Temporary Disinfectant Conversion from Chloramine to Free Chlorine The Laguna Madre Water District (LMWD) public water system, (PWS), will temporarily convert the disinfectant used in the distribution system from chloramine to free chlorine, due to its current earthly taste and odor caused by the Rio Grande River’s low water level. This conversion will begin on 5/17/2022 and continue through 6/6/2022. During this period, you may experience a chlorine taste and odor change associated with this type of temporary disinfectant conversion. We have been in contact with The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), whom is aware that we will be properly disinfecting our water and maintain an adequate disinfectant residual in the distribution system. Chloramine, free chlorine combined with ammonia, is widely used as a disinfectant because it persists for long periods while also limiting the formation of disinfection by-product contaminants. Prolonged use of chloramine coupled with other factors that can affect water quality, such as high temperatures or stagnation of water, may result in the growth and/or persistence of organic matter a secondary constituent within the pipes of the distribution system, which may hinder the ability to maintain an adequate disinfectant residual. A temporary conversion to free chlorine, partnered with flushing activities, helps to rid distribution pipes of this organic matter and improve the quality of your water overall. LMWD has chosen to implement a temporary disinfectant conversion to free chlorine based on the current taste and odor of the potable water even though the water is safe for consumption. This taste and odor come from the source water, which is the Rio Grande River, due to low levels that are caused by the lack of rain in the Amistad and Falcon Dam area. Currently the water level is at 31.38% which is a moderate drought stage, while during non-drought conditions the water level is above 50%. Please be advised that LMWD is in communication with TCEQ and abides by the regulations mention that taste and odor can be caused by a secondary constituent that is not regulated within our daily testing as reported to TCEQ. If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact _____Carlos J. Galvan Jr.____________________ at _____(956) 943-2626 x 110________________.
  2. Twitter links look like this on my PC. Do I need to change settings? They look fine on mobile.
  3. Burntorange&white's avatar keeps him off ignore. Rockethorn has no such redeeming qualities.
  4. This does not look like the #15 class you were bemoaning a few weeks ago.
  5. Hey @immamac, what happened to my Burnt Ends flair? I paid for a year in advance and haven't seen a notice to re-up.
  6. Didn't help that later that evening atm beat Alabama.
  7. Perhaps Immamac can put a pool together on the number of wins. $100.00 entry, 20 of which can go to Burnt Ends. Each person picks a win total. Going into the last game of the season, all potential winners pick the score of the last game. Pay out five spots to those picking the closest score.
  8. How many more years of suckage before the money coming in begins to dry up? The Texas brand was strong enough to withstand 12+ years of wandering in the desert, can it stand another 10 years?
  9. Held Alabama to 24 points in the 2017 Semifinal, but Alabama's offense was more one dimensional at the time.
