It rained, it rained, it rained. . . I like saying that. I haven’t had much of an opportunity to say it this year until yesterday. We didn’t get a lot; looks like about three eights of an inch. Adding up all the rain that we got this year, the total comes to just a little over an inch but I am sure that is going to change. Houston, which is closer to the gulf, only got eleven inches so far. That dang big dome of high pressure that sat over us has finally moved off to the west, allowing some rain to come in. Not only did we get rain yesterday, we have a forty percent chance for some more over the next couple of days. Now forty percent didn’t use to sound like a lot, but after all that zero percents, it seems like a lot.
This may help lower the risk of wild fires but it is a little late to save a lot of the flora and fauna. It will take years to recover from this extra long drought. That is, if it doesn’t return soon. That big dome of high pressure could just move back in here. Sure hope not. We all like nice weather, but we just had way too much of a nice thing. It is time for some more rain. No, I am not satisfied with the little bit we got yesterday. I WANT SOME MORE!!
Right now, the radar shows a lot of rain down near the coast. It seems to be moving to the north east. Maybe in a few hours it will work its way up through Houston and make it all the way to where I live. Sure hope so. It looks like we will have a good chance of getting a little more rain today. Hallelujah!!
You all have a great day now, you hear?
