The Big news in Texas is RAIN!
Here in North Texas it has been a bit dry, but over in the Hill Country it has been parched for waaaay too long. Am really glad to see rain there.
Currently in our little corner of Lewisville we have collected five and one half inches in the rain gauge since Friday. It's been raining off and on all night so there is a bit more. My journalistic integrity stops at wet hair right before bed so I am not going to run outside and see what is in the rain gauge.
I am very happy to report that inspite of the low clouds and grey skies the landscape has taken on an attractive new look this afternoon. With just three days of steady rain, the off-green kind of yellow pall has been replaced with a vibrant green.
So, will El Nino bring moisture back to the Hill Country and end their cursed drought? Let's hope so.
Walk in beauty.
Peace from the blog porch.
