Re: Rain finally!!!
Pam, I'm so thrilled for you!!! Hope you get enough to bring you closer to
normal. You all needed it more than we did, so I'm thrilled for you!!!!!
We've been told since a week now that we have a 75-80% chance of rain,
including severe storms EVERY day.....but nothing. Just a sprinkle here and
there, enough to make you THINK it will rain. Beautiful days, a bit overcast at
times, but that just kept the temps down nicely. Had a great day for the
plant sale too. But had to water every day. The winds dry things out so fast,
and then no rain!!
Last night they showed a strong line of "super cell" storms heading east
across Texas. Was to hit San Antonio first, then us. Put all of South Central
and East Texas under tornado watches and warnings......so braced for the
worst, hoped for the best. Woke up this morning....storms to the south, north
and east. Looked outside, my rain buckets have about an inch or two. Do we
have a giant umbrella over this area or what?????
Talked to my mom yesterday, they have water rationing starting already....a
bit early in the year. They needed the rain bad. Hope she got some at
least. Can't imagine if they have water rationing already, what the summer will

Well I am pleased to share that it has been raining here since Friday
night. As of 4 this afternoon, had five inches in the rain gauge, but I
know we actually got more than that. Still coming down and another line of
storms moving in will hit here probably about 1am or so. Two days ago we
had red flag (fire) warnings and now we're under the first flash flood watch
I've seen since last year about this time. Considering we were 16 inches
behind before this hit, this will help. Won't get us back to where we
should be w/ the lakes and all, but it will help a lot. A few more
weekends like this and we'll be in tolerable shape for the normal summer
drought. I hope that's all it is this year. Three months or drought I can
stand, 12 months is ridiculous. So keep up the good wishes for rain. They
finally seem to be working!
