    It Rained!

    First measurable rain we're had since the end of May. Thunder and lightening too. It was great to see things perking up this morning.

    I know!!! We had 2"...only problem was that it came down so hard that most of it probably rolled right off instead of sinking in.
    The dog had a bad night with all the thunder and lightning...she barked at the sky a couple of times.
    I have pulled a whole lot of weeds this morning...wet ground makes them come out with roots.

    Finally got rain in central Texas....lots of it. So good to see everything green-ing up again. It did rain hard, thunderstorms and fabulous lightning shows! Finally started comin' down in a nice steady drizzle so it could soak into everything really good. Thank you LORD.

    Lucky you!!!! We got a few inches lately too but we could still use a lot more here in Eastern New York.

    We got some, too... not enough to make a different -- just enough to make it more humid. I have my sprinkler on right now, tho I think it may be too late to salvage much.
