A Bit of Texas Thanks You



Got some slow soaking in kind of rain here in North Texas last evening. It must have rained for over 4 hours. I wish I had a rain guage for such an event. The bird bath is overflowing.

More for the folks further South? Thank you for such a great evening.

That's just wonderful! We have long 'dry' seasons here and we experience drought in ten-year or so cycles, and the first time I smell rain after a long dry period is just heavenly!

Thank goodness, TG! Hope the deep south gets its share next time!

Oh, my gosh! I had heard it rained there. But, I'm so glad you got pictures because otherwise I'm not sure I would have believed it! Four hours!!!!!! Wahoo! Congratulations! Not a drop here, but still hoping some will come this way in the next day or two.

Cindy, GLAD to hear it! And thank goodness the rain was nice and slow instead of a downpour.

how great that it was a good long rain too. it will take a lot I suspect to really get the ground far down.

Oh, lucky you! My daughter headed back to school last night and had to get through Dallas. I checked radar and the storm looked wicked...hope you guys didn't get anything too severe. Nothing here...yet...it's got to come sooner or later.
