Jeanna, This is an excellent post about our city, San Antonio. Many will remember these facts for some time. But, the one fact that I love is the fact that San Antonio is still one of the most affordable cities to live in the country. That's what brought be back here when I retired from the military service.

Jeanna, we were there in January for my Grandson's graduation.  Beautiful city.  It was very cold and rained the whole time we were there, so we didn't get to see the Riverwalk.  I understand it was drained and being cleaned at that time.
