Drought to Flood

Temperature and Rain 2015It was just 4 years ago that Texas was facing the worst drought in over 100 years. This year we’ve had above average rain fall. It’s making a dent in the drought.

“Human nature only remembers the near term, and we quickly forget we’ve been in drought for years. One wet spring won’t get us out of it.” A quote from Brian Fuchs. Source: The Scoop Blog with Dallas Morning News

Sometimes it feels like feast or famine.

Most of the lakes around here are closed or partially closed due to flooding. Memorial Day will be a wash out for Lake Somerville.

I guess we’ll see how long this lasts.

Rain

This is worth mentioning for future reference – we got about 2 inches of rain yesterday night. That’s the first time since May 23 that we’ve seen rain, and January since we’ve seen more than an inch.
