Labor Day Weekend on Lake Texoma

Posted:

POTTSBORO, TX -- Labor Day Weekend brings hundreds to Lake Texoma. Deeda Payton reports.

Labor Day Weekend is one of the busiest holidays on the lake. "I like to come out and have fun on the water," said Omar Alkhativ of Sherman, TX.

It seems Lake Texoma has something for everyone. "Tubing and skiing and stuff. It's fun," said Garrett, Ryan and Kyle of Weatherford and Fort Worth, TX.

Hundreds of sailboats and jet skies dotted the water with many lake goers soaking up the sunshine for the last time.  "It's really fun. This is my second time here and we've enjoyed it ever since we came," said Rileigh Upshaw of Weatherford, TX.

Many said it was the best weather they've experienced all summer. "Well we've had a lot more people because it ain't as hot. See it was so hot you couldn't even go outside and sit," said Robert Havner of Sherman, TX. All in all, it was a fine weekend and a great way to wrap up the dog days of summer in Texoma.

That was delaying treatment times by at least an hour and a half. So ninety minutes extra time where the brain was starved of oxygen leads to poorer outcomes."...More >>
