Good news, indeed! Behind those welcome words of completion are many months of dreaming, praying, planning, spending, working, and waiting. Especially waiting these last couple of months.
First came record rain. Over fifteen inches of October rain--nearly half an ordinary year's total rainfall in one month--ended drought conditions around Texas, cancelled Baylor's annual homecoming parade, and idled work at The Cloister. Unlike low-lying river bottom developments, our neighborhood is nestled high up on the tree-rimmed bluff above the Brazos River, so we witnessed no flooding. Our rolling topography and quick draining soil also helped us dry out more quickly than most. Still, we waited . . . and waited some more for Mother Nature to bring an end to her rains.
Then came November. More rain. Then Thanksgiving . . . and more rain. By the time December rolled around we were chomping at the bit to see the last stages of work completed. Of course late December and early January brought extended Christmas and New Year's holidays.
So, with real gladness we have celebrated a stretch of beautiful mid-January weather, watched the punch list items get checked off, and welcomed the City's final approval of the project. The final plat has been filed and the county clerk is recording it in the books.
Coming up next, we will convey our first four lots to the founding families of The Cloister at Cameron Park.
