Texas is going through an Arctic-like harsh winter and adding more woes to the severe cold spell in the state, millions of people are going through a clean water and power crisis.
A powerful winter storm knocked down the power grids leaving residents facing the cold without electricity. Also, water crisis is plaguing the people of Texas, especially San Antonio, as they are left with no clean water to use. Despite the adversity, heart-warming stories are coming out of Texas about people’s thoughtfulness. In one such instance, a woman was met with a pleasant surprise at her closed store.
Bonnie Valdez from San Antonio shared an image of several dollar bills lying on the floor of her store where she works. Taking to Facebook to share the details of the incident, Valdez explained that when she went to check up on the store at the gas station where she works, all the cartons of packaged drinking water she had left outside the store, probably for her own use, were all gone when she came back the next morning.
She stated it wasn’t surprising to find that the clean water bottles were gone amidst a water crisis as people are in dire need. ‘Understandable everyone needs water and I had almost 100 in 7-11 pk and probably 40 of aquafina outside,’ she wrote on Facebook. But when Valdez opened the door, she was taken aback with what she found inside. A total of $620 was lying around the floor near the entrance. Even though the shop was closed, people were kind enough to leave money for the goods taken. Moved by the gesture, Valdez took to Facebook to share the news and since then the story is melting hearts even amidst the harsh cold.
The post has been shared more than 90,000 times and has gathered more than 40,000 likes. Netizens were moved by the honest gesture and praised the citizens of San Antonio in comments. One of the users said that it is the reflection of how Valdez treats her customers. Another said the incident says a lot about her store and restores his faith in humanity.
