Now that water service and electricity have been restored to nearly everyone in the county, Travis County Judge Andy Brown has rescinded two severe-weather orders made last week to conserve water and power. As of today, car-washing businesses may resume normal operations, and the restrictions on using exterior lighting have been rescinded. And with the lights back on, everyone can see clearly just how dirty all the cars are.

Editor’s Note: Andy Brown is on the board of the Capital of Texas Media Foundation, the parent nonprofit of the Austin Monitor.
