Two green blocks stared back from the screen like a traffic light signaling, "Go. Go."
Could they be? Vacancies?
Chip and Joanna Gaineses' Magnolia House famously sold out through the end of the year just hours after reservations went online last February. But here it was a Monday in mid-July, and as I poked around the vacation home's website, consecutive green blocks on the reservation calendar meant it was available the next Sunday and Monday nights.
Hmmmmm. Two nights at $700 each, plus tax, would cost more than $1,500. In McGregor. Not even Waco. McGregor, 20 minutes south of Waco and nowhere near anyplace else.
