    I guess your praying for more rain. We've been getting afternoon TS some with a couple inches of rain we're hearing the thunder start now they said it would be a little later today. Good luck but not to many inches. It's either feast or famine. Sue

    PLEASE send rain here!! We have been sweltering in the heat (100+) for the last week or so and not a drop of rain during that period. We water constantly, and my garden is still gasping.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I live in northern Texas. We have 100+ days from June through September. Water bans in effect most of the time. Watering garden just enough to keep blackened peas productive.

    There are thunderstorms all around us. We are hearing thunder but so far just noise. We haven't had a good rain for weeks. Old and newer bushes alike are wilting. We have had a couple of weeks of above 100 temps. , our humidity has been very low, very unusual for us. A/C runs constantly from 11A until I turn it to 80 for the night, set at 75 when we are home..

    You really don't want to know how much rain we have received here over the past few weeks. As it is the "Rainy Season", either it is almost raining, raining, or thinking about raining each day! But I agree that at least rain keeps the temperature down!

    Here on the wrong side of the mountains, we usually only get rain in the spring and fall. This year we didn't. My garden is in horrible shape.
    every cloud has a silver lining but sometimes it is hard to get to the mint

    "Hear it rain, hear it rain, pitter patter, pitter patter, on the window pain." Hope you have a nice gentle all day rain.
