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 
be like.

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!
