GMSA: Cooler weather; Dallas tornado; Cowboys-Eagles recap

By Mark Austin - Anchor, Leslie Mouton - Anchor, Ben Spicer - Digital Journalist

Good Monday morning from the GMSA anchor desk!

It's a wet start to your week so please be careful as you head out today. Once again the very dapper Max Massey is in for Mark Austin. We look like an Easter egg -- with his pink tie and my blue dress 😂.

Poor Max had to work all weekend, but you won't hear him complain about it. I tried a new restaurant in Cibolo Friday, Mako's on the Creek. It was fabulous, and they even had a live jazz band on the deck outside. It was a great night!

I sure hope your weekend was great too. Time to get this week going with GMSA.

Have a fabulous Monday!

- Leslie and Max
