We have weather!!!!!

It's been raining for two days now...pretty hard, too! It's ALSO cooled off quite a bit, but there's been no mention of freezes. Rather than constantly updating y'all on our N. Texas weather, I included a weather sticker on the footer. If you scroll ALL the way DOWN, you'll see a 7-day forecast for where we live. The weeds are gonna love this rain! The seeds may end up in the next yard. The sounds and light-shows have been impressive. The town wells might actually start to fill; the drought may already be over! Hooray! (I THINK)... MAYBE... We'll SEE. I'll letcha know.

Flash Flood warnings have been issued already. We get those every time it rains heavily, simply because the ground is typically so hard from all the sun that it can't readily absorb a whole bunch of rain at one time.

Somebody go out there and see if the worms have climbed out of the ground! YOU go first!

P.S. I think the Weather Bureau "blew" Thursday of this week. Highs are supposed to be higher than lows (last time I checked).

Hooray! Mommy got rained on!
Hope your garden survives the tides. We had a pretty bad storm last Sunday that was pretty amazing to watch. The first rainfall was blowing in from one direction. It stopped. Then started blowing in from the opposite direction. I'm a big fan of the storms that have the high winds. Sounds beautiful.

Woo hoo!

We had some nasty weather last week (same storms that blew up to IL--my mom got hit by those up there, probably my dad and the one bro who lives up there, too) that left us with several inches and flash flooding.

Then, it started raining this Friday and hasn't stopped since. More flash flooding. It's finally looking like it might clear up today, though.

The yard looks like a tidal wave hit it. I'm really loving my raised rows right now...

We are still getting snow, on and off. Sometimes it is snow, others it is rain. It never sticks around though. All the snow melts and we pretty much always look like it rained in the past week...

The fire-ants ALSO climb out of the ground in these deep rains. Why didn't I think of that before I walked out there in my crappy garden sandals to see how everything was doing? [They hang out with the REGULAR ants, too, 'cause they LOOKED like the REGULAR ants when I saw them crawling all over my feet.]

Call your brokers! MORE stock in neosporin!

Good to know that ants aren't racists. :)

Blogger has been burping today, so when #3 posted a comment which got entered THREE times, I deleted them (one at a time) for 2 times and... THEN they told me they were having problems and my deletions exceeded ... you get my drift....

"I always thought that the red ants would kick the pants off the black ones. Something about them being immune to whatever sting that they have...

Apparently Ants have discovered world peace!

Maybe they found out that the black ants have the R-A-ID bomb, and now they have to diplomicize... "

That's censorship!!

I added a post early this morning, and it still hasn't shown up!

I wonder if there is an update or something going on. Maybe this place just got really popular, and the server can't keep up.
