Our Drought is History

Today's deluge

Today’s deluge

I read that February broke our all time record for rainfall.  Our multi-year drought is finally broken!

I am thrilled that the drought is gone.  That means lots of flowers and mushrooms this year.  But I am wondering if I should consider building an ark now.  🙂

Right now lightning is flashing and thunder is booming.  A tornado watch is in effect.  Colder weather is moving in behind the rain.  It sure is testing my patience, as I am beyond chomping at the bit to get the fan installed in the trailer.

As changeable as the weather is lately though, I’m still hoping that an unpredicted, beautiful day will pop up.  I’ll be ready when it does come!

I am working hard to keep a positive, cheery outlook. Warm, sunny weather will be such good medicine!

On the other hand, Sheba doesn’t care about the rain.  I opened the door to take a photo for the blog and she tore out into the downpour.

As an old friend would say, “That dog’s not right bright.”  😀

Driveway camping at Gail’s House

Driveway camping at Gail's house

We left Tall Pines RV Park in Shreveport at 7:00 Tuesday morning, and arrived at Gail’s house around 1:00 pm.

I managed to back the trailer into their driveway right where I wanted it, surprising all of us!

Mike grilled steaks and hamburgers for dinner this evening, and we spent the evening in conversation on every conceivable subject trying to catch up on everything we’ve missed sharing since their move to Texas.

Tomorrow is supposed to be another sunny day in the 70’s, so we plan to drive to Galveston.

The houses on the street are beautifully decorated for Christmas.  Unfortunately my camera doesn’t pick up the glow  that shimmers over the entire neighborhood.  So rather than post a disappointing photo, I’ll try again later to capture the magical luminosity.
