— Mark Twain

We’re now more than halfway through the summer season and unusually wet weather shows signs of continuing. There’s chances of rain throughout the upcoming week, so enjoy the break from the heat provided by precipitation. However, make sure to keep an eye on the temperature when enjoying the Lazy S Splash Ranch and Kilgore City Pool. Sunscreen, shade and plenty of hydrating drinks are the key to staying safe in the summer sun.
