    Summer of the supermoons

    August Super Moon over a little Texas town


    Troy, Texas is a little town on I-35 with hundreds of thousands of people traveling under it's Main Street bridge that connects the East side of town with the West side. If you blink while passing through on the highway below, you just might miss it.

    I have called Troy my home for 32 years, since the age of 10. I have walked across this bridge to and from school. We have had street dances and shut that Main Street down to make memories in our community. We have decorated that bridge for Homecoming, State Championship wins, annual Fun Fests and welcoming soldiers home to nearby Fort Hood. Now, with the reconstruction of I-35 changing the landscape of our little town, this bridge will soon be gone and it's inevitable; change is coming. Well, in fact, it’s already here.  Change is a good thing. Growth leads us all as a community to bigger and better things for all those who will call Troy home too one day.


    Troy, Texas is the little town with a big heart and the August 2014 Super Moon last night, shined big and bright, deep in the heart of that Texas town Main Street like it may never shine again.
