Getting Ready for the Total Eclipse in Comfort, Texas

The total eclipse is fast approaching, and whether you’re a resident or a visitor, it’s essential to prepare for this extraordinary event. Here’s what you need to know:


For Visitors:

As you plan your trip to Comfort, Texas, it’s crucial to be mindful of the challenges our small town faces in accommodating a surge in visitors. While Kendall County Emergency Management’s plans remain undisclosed, it’s wise to come prepared for various scenarios.

Based on last year’s meeting, we anticipate a significant influx of visitors, potentially outnumbering residents. With limited infrastructure, including restroom facilities and cell towers, potential challenges such as communication and power outages may arise. Therefore, it’s advisable to stock up on essentials like food, water, and cash before your arrival. Additionally, bringing blankets, pillows, and extra supplies for your vehicle can ensure your comfort in case of extended stays or traffic delays.

Remember, our town may experience increased demand at gas pumps and limited availability of supplies, so planning ahead is key to a smooth experience. Let’s show respect and understanding for our host community by being responsible and considerate visitors.


For Residents:

As residents of Comfort, it’s vital to prepare ourselves and assist our neighbors during this unprecedented event. With potentially millions of visitors expected in the Hill Country and thousands in Comfort, our small town’s resources may be stretched thin.

Ensure you have ample supplies of essentials like water, food, and medications to last several days, as well as backup power sources for medical devices. Be proactive in helping neighbors, particularly those who may require assistance. Since communication channels may be overwhelmed, establishing local support networks and checking on vulnerable residents can foster community resilience.

Let’s extend a warm welcome to our visitors and work together to ensure everyone’s safety and well-being during this once-in-a-lifetime event.
