In the immediate aftermath of the Memorial Day Weekend floods, social media began to light up with calls for help. It also lit up with calls offering help. We watched in awe as neighbor after neighbor put their own needs aside to help someone in more dire straits. Tears definitely flowed as we read about the folks at the Wimberley Wash Day Laundry (along with some other local business owners) in their struggles to keep washers going and flowing with free laundry services to those affected. Our readers may have voted this small chain as the 2015 winner anyway, but it's stories like this that make working on "Best of Austin" a joy. Wash Day, thank you for making the sorrows of late May April-fresh.
