Relief:
Well at long, long last we have had some water falling out of the sky here in central Texas. How long has it been without rain?, well I can’t say but you can get a good idea when you know Devann used the be clean shaven when we had water.
Our special thanks to all those LJs of certain states north of us who have been been pissing in the wind lately, but the north winds have been pretty weak and most of the moisture relief fell short and ended up in Louisianna, as Charlie will attest.
Imagine the joy of the people of Texas: Babies can be christened and older converts baptised by dunking, wannabe drinkers can have water in their scotch again, people can bathe – (please do immediately), no more dry martinis, dying vegetation might grow again – especially watercress.
We are said to be in store for more rain in the next few days and may see flooding, which hopefully will end the burn ban which some youngsters can’t remember a time without one, but if it does flood then maybe it will take away the rubbish burn piles and distribute them over the border.

We need to thank Rick Perry and the combined R & D parties for allowing this rain to go through after compromising, and special thanks to God for coming to the aid of HIS State.

Yeah, I heard Perry agreed to never lead another public prayer event for rain in Texas! That surely HAS to be true… We got over 2in between Austin and San Antonio yesterday and more is on the way!

Best line of the year, Roger. :-)

H-Mike,
We had a fair soaking around Waco and I see the forecasters are expecting more rain for up to 3 days. I still have a burn pile dating back to last year, seems the burn ban has been on for ever.
The trees are shedding their leaves already, I do hope not everything has died.
Enjoy the rain Mike, get some barrels to store it up for a n on-rainy day.

We’ve not got any of it here in the valley…the ground was slightly damp this morning…I suspect we had a few drops last night. There was an impressive lightning display west of us(Rio Grande City) but no visitation here. We continue to wither. Citrus crop is a disaster, and the garden is growing dust bunnies

With all the constant flooding up north you would think that someone would propose piping the flood waters down south where we need it.
I wonder if Obama could use that as a “back to work” project? It could employ thousands and let the south have much needed water. Perhaps Perry might mention this idea to Obama as an R contribution to create jobs?
Just think, “Tea Parties” could be had all the year in the south because there would be no shortage of water to brew. Sounds like a win – win solution for both R’s & D’s.

Thanks David, we still need more of the wet stuff. H-Mike only managed to catch 2 gallons in his 10 gallon hat. :-)

There is also a serious side to the drought. Our 2 dogs will now have to get used to drinking water instead of the wife’s Dr. Pepper and I will have to learn how to use my Wet grinder to sharpen again. The good news is that there is plenty capacity in the septic tank from the drought, so look on the bright side.

Mickey,
But aren’t 20 gauge condoms rare in Texas, so do you import them from up north?
