Today we are under a fire weather alert. Yes, we did get a rain a week and a day (8 days) ago, but it was not all that much and it immediately turned back into dry weather conditions. Today is to be extremely windy with very low humidity and it is suppose to get back up around 100 degrees again. A drought that has lasted almost a year is hard to break. I just wonder how long it will be until we do get back to the semblance of normal. This drought and the fires it caused has been the death of so very much flora and fauna. The small amount of rain that we did have a week ago did not help the trees any. It just perked up the weeds and some of the grass.
Once this drought is broken, we will probably have flooding. It seems like one extreme usually turns into the opposite one. It reminds me of a pendulum. It swings almost as far one way as the other and it takes a long time for it to slow down.
Of course if it does rain soon, it will probably be a severe thunder and lightning storm and the lightning will probably set off some more fires. Guess I need to be careful for what I wish for. If it were not for everything dying, nice clear weather is rather nice. . .
You all have a great day now, you hear?
