Good to see Texas finally getting some rain!

  1. Nothing smells worse than dry Longhorn farts. That strong south wind in the summer makes for poor air quality in the plains when Texas is dry. LOL

    April saw squat rain. In May it is supposed to rain about 1.25"/week. We didn't get that all month.

    Finally got a thunderstorm yesterday. If we do not get more soon the water rationing/ban type measures will be in place by mid July.:angry:

    Last Saturday I was watching the Astros at Cubs game. Dudes were wearing coats and I was wearing shorts and a tank top. It was damn near a 100 that day. Amazing how Mother Nature works.
