(With apologies to Jerry Herman . . . Sing it with me...)
Well goodbye, Dolly,
It's so nice to have you back where you belong.
(Anywhere but here!)
We needed rain, Dolly,
but you were a pain, Dolly,
With your blowin, and your growin',
You kept goin' strong.
We felt the room swayin'
With your storm’s sprayin’
But you didn’t bring the rain we needed then, so...
Take all your wind, Dolly
Take your counterclockwise spin, Dolly
Promise you'll never come this way again!
Total rainfall at our house in Victoria, Texas: barely over one inch. We're going to have to start watering the yard again this weekend, looks like.
There were times when the Weather Channel radar showed a wide swath of dark green rain right over us for fairly long periods of time, but not a drop hit the ground. Much of the past few days the sun has been shining brightly.
But now that I've complained, we'll probably get the next storm right through this area, category 4, and we'll all drown in the flooding. Some folks are never happy, right?
