It has been so long since we have seen rain, that when it started night before last, not sure what it was. Went to check and yes, it was RAIN, blessed RAIN! I took my shoes off and went and played in the rain...LOL...yes I did! It even looks like we might get some more this afternoon. Hoping so, my yard surely loved what little we have already gotten. I even plugged in the battery tender to my lawn mower as I know I will have to mow the grass later, but right now, just want to look at all that green grass. :) Love it (especially since I am the only one on the court with green grass)! We actually tied then broke the all time record for most number of days in the triple digits in one year. Last Monday it hit 105 and Tuesday it hit 107, highest temps for those dates ever and tied, then broke 1980 record of 69 days in one year. We hit 70 this year and the average overall temperature was higher too. We started tapering down on Wednesday when it only reached 97, then down to 94 yesterday and today supposed to hit 90, but hey it is less than 100+ Right? This has also been the driest year since sometime in the 1950's so far. The worst year for wildfires for sure with the largest loss of property and lives. They almost have the Palo Pinto County fire contained, down to 90% now and the Bastrop County fire is 75% contained. I think all these prayer vigils we have been having has finally worked.
