    Woke up early this morning thanks to a cat who has no concept of time. I heard thunder, wandered out to the kitchen & discovered that it's raining. I even went outside to be out in it to make sure it was real. :)

    PS - here's picture of the radar right now.

    That's great news!!! I'm happy for you.
    About the cat- why do they need a sense of time?? They have no schedules hahahaha :)

    I pray that it will continue and spread over your whole region. I've been so worried about the conditions there-it's been such a dire situation.

    I am in Plano to, what a surprise to find 2 dogs running into the house with muddy paws this morning. We didn't hear the rain so had no idea. Couldn't be mad though was more excited my yard is wet!

    Hope you get lots! Plus, hope it's a slow enough rain that it will have time to seep in and not just run off. We are also needing rain. It's been heat indexes here of over 100 for probably the last 30 days. Our trees are dropping their leaves, pecans are dropping off, figs dropping off.. Just too hot to survive. I've never seen it like this before.

    It's seeping in, but we will need lots of rain to break this drought. I have cracks in my yard that are 8 inches wide. I'm north of Plano, up in Sherman. It was wonderful to wake up to rain.Finally

    So far it's been really damp all day. Hopefully we get a bit more rain before going back to the 100 degree days.

    Rain, blessed rain! We were so parched here and all the green things are so happy. 80 with clouds and breezes - what a nice break! :)

    It was worth not breaking the record - yesterday, we tied the record for number of 100 days in a row and today would have broken it.

    Tomorrow, we are supposed to head back into the 100's so I'm really loving this "cool" while we have it!
