At this point, it looks like East Texas is in for another nice, cool, and dry weekend with lots of sunshine and temperatures hovering around 50 degrees all weekend. It's going to be another perfect fall weekend to get out and do something within the community or get a jump start on putting the Christmas lights on the house and get inflatables out and staked down.

With Thanksgiving and Christmas on the way, there will be many opportunities to find that perfect decoration or gift at any of these events, but when you see it, get it because you don't know if it'll be there later!
