Overnight a storm from Mexico is bringing flash flooding and lots of rain through Sunday.
Some of the energy is from the west... but also from the Gulf of Mexico.
Living up hill means the rain flows downhill.
I went outside yesterday to walk Charlie and discovered a nature work of art out back.
With the rain running downhill it flowed into my driveway and took all the cedar needles and formed waves out back. Similar to the patterns at the beach as the waves recede. Beautiful.
Plus the rain poured out of my ex uphill neighbor's yard. Cans and bottles get lined up along the fence. Though small trash, broken glass, etc. flowed down my paths leaving
the small stuff along my paths. Which I have to clean up all the time. That's because rain also sends dirt etc down them as well. I am always finding and having to dig out lg & sm bits of glass that could cut Charlie's paws. Thats the un-pretty part.
Another side effect to lots of rain means even when it's not pouring and there's the slightest breath of wind... I get rained on under or close to each tree. Sometimes with big oaks I get a surprise shower and get soaked. Lol
So it seems this afternoon rain will be here soon. There are thunderstorms embedded but not as intense as with yesterdays storm.
The drought won't be ended but some areas will have relief. Especially the farmers, rancher with stock.
The Edward's Aquifer received 3 feet from this last storm. Very very good news.
The storms are covering huge amt of TX. Here has been luckier then West Tx... even luckier then SA.
Charlie and I look for those stickers. With the rain there new stickers grow anew every morning. I end up with 4 or 5 fist fulls every day. So far no mushrooms or toadstools. Whew!
8-) ok off to do some weeding with charlie before the rain starts, again. Good thing I mowed the front yard... the back in areas is up to 8 inches high. Only 3/4ths of the yard to mow next week. 8-) And it will be hot & sunny. Yeah!!!
