Slow, Rainy Monday… Wait! Rainy?

July 15, 2013

Rain is fallingYES!  After the rains around Memorial Day, we haven’t really seen a drop of real rain in this part of the Hill Country.  The green explosion that followed the deluge has steadily yellowed as week after week went by.  Meanwhile, the summer heat has been living up to Texas reputations, with daily highs at or just over 100 degrees. 

I keep thinking of last year, where we had those crazy, hope-inspiring spring rains, followed by… well, followed by nothing for months.  Finally there were a couple of September storms, and then little to nothing else all through the winter.   Dry?  Yeah, it’s been dry. 

So while I’m knocking wood and hoping that this is a climatic turning point, I’m also loving every drop!  Apparently, so are the critters.  The roadways and pastures along the way to “town” today were covered in whitetails, axis, and turkeys… all out taking advantage of the cooler weather and moisture.

    It’s a screen capture from Weather Underground, Mike. In my experience, they’re one of the most reliable weather websites I’ve used.
