Jo just emailed me from Austin after she and her husband were on I-35, just passing West moments before the West Fertilizer plant explosion that is wreaking havoc on lives in that little town just north of Waco — that’s where they have the cute Kolache bakery on I-35.

Maybe it’s time to get that second home in the country, on a lake, somewhere where you can feel SAFE, or pretend to! Long Cove is a new, private residential community located just over an hour from Dallas on Cedar Creek Lake. The area is getting a ton of buzz . It was built to give North Texas families a second home experience close-to-home, getaways that promote an unplugged, relaxing and family-oriented experience.
Unplugged: that’s what we need after this week!
What’s the Long Cove prescription for relaxation? A true lock and leave experience — having your boat ready and gassed up the minute your car reaches Long Cove. Pre-planned catered events, kitchen and fridge stocked with the groceries your family prefers upon arrival, housekeeping and maid service, and home maintenance. No one wants to spend their precious vacation hours changing lightbulbs, cleaning baseboards or waiting in line at Wal Mart on vaca!
