Re: Extreme heat....floods.

Yeah, no joke.  Did you hear about the floods in El Paso????   Good grief, I 
lived there for a number of years, it NEVER rained.  People  didn't have 
landscapes, it was all xeriscape, desert landscapes, cacti was the  plant of choice 
for gardens.  Didn't have a house then, but I had lots of  plants in pots on 
a covered patio.   On CNN they showed pictures of  the Rio Grande River that 
was overflowing....it never had ANY water in it while  I lived there.  So to 
think that it could have THAT much water to overflow  is amazing.  It's not a 
small river either.  
They showed pictures of downtown El Paso, with rushing water several feet  
deep.  Just amazing.  They got more water in one day than they do in  one year 
We've been getting afternoon thunderstorms, but nothing serious enough to  do 
harm.  Went to a Master Gardener program yesterday, had to take a detour  
because the roads were still closed in some areas, still  flooded.    We are fine 
here.   By the way, Jim, I lost  my Longan that I was so proud of doing so 
well, also a Costa Rican  Naseberry......just too much water, I guess.

yeah, my  boss and I were talking about that this morning.  the pipes break
here  in summer and up north in the winter.  it's just gotten so old  having
your life revolve around water, or the lack  thereof....
