While many parts of this country (and others) are suffering from record heat, we who live near the Texas coast have been getting rained on for the past several days.
So much so, in fact, that I heard on the radio this morning that with the 7 inches we’ve received in the last few days Victoria, TX, is now slightly above its “normal” rainfall total for this far into the year. Gee, just a few months ago we were supposed to be in “extreme drought” conditions. RobotJam over in Warwick, England, was asking me to come collect some of the rains that had his garden saturated and haul the water back here.
It looks like Mother Nature has handled that feat for us.
So is the moral of the story that all things balance out in time? Perhaps, “Be careful what you wish for – you might get it?”
Don’t know, but the rain is certainly welcome.
Oh, and there’s still no public word on the investigation of my neighbor’s house fire and her death. From our perspective the fire was almost certainly set. With gasoline or a similar accelerant. But we don’t know for certain, so that’s just speculation.
When we learn more I’ll let you know.
