How about non-weather related post.  Last month , a TikTok video has gone viral of a California woman and she was shocked how Texans act at the Waterpark. She comes from California and could not believe that Texans just leave their belongings unattended while they enjoy the Waterpark.  Nobody rummages or steals anything and goes about their day. She ends the video with "...and that is why we moved to Texas!"  Welcome to Texas, psychollly! The comments are fantastic


@psychollly I know ya’ll hate transplants… but imagine having to CLENCH your purse everywhere you went. IF you even felt safe enough to go I’m all about staying vigilant, but it’s exhausting (and disheartening) never being able to let your guard down, anywhere. Everyone deserves to live in a place that they feel comfortable #doitforyourfamily #CAtoTX #texas #california #waterpark #summer #crime #safety #comfortable #family ♬ Feels Like Summer - Samuel Jack


Living in Texas, I have never felt the need to worry about our stuff at the tables. It doesn't matter where we go: Splashway, Schilterbahn, Splashtown(RIP), Fiesta Texas, Sea World San Antonio. Never a problem!

We Miss Splashtown San Antonio – Abandoned Photos

Splashtown has been closed for going on three years and it still makes me sad.  I recently saw a picture on social media and it brought back so many memories. Splashtown in San Antonio will forever be my favorite waterpark in SA. By far, it was the most economical and the crowds were never overwhelming.

The clearing of the land has already been completed but let's take a look at some abandoned, creepy photos of the defunct Waterpark from last year!

THE "LAZY RIVER": Who spent a little time just relaxing in the lazy river? Bonus points, if you can gracefully get in or out of a tube.
