They say this last rain broke our year long drought. So, what does that mean? It sure doesn’t mean that it made up the deficit. It just means that during the month of January 2012, we received sufficient rain this month, you know, around normal for January. If we were to get enough to make up for the deficit for all last year, it would float Noah’s boat. Since my cousin who lives in Virginia wrote me an email saying that he heard on TV that Texas’s drought was broken and wondered if we got that much rain, he got me thinking about what it took to break the drought. Just enough rain to reach the normal level for one month, and we did that this month.
I do know that the frogs are happy around my place. It would be nice if the drought is really broken, but I am not so sure. If the same Pacific Ocean currents are, or will be, in place this year as last, we will be back in a drought before too long. I will keep my fingers crossed.
Have a good day, and hope none of you got into any dangerous weather yesterday.
