There’s some weird weather pattern that stays right over us. For the most part, rain will look like it’s headed right at us and then it splits and either goes above us or below us . . sometimes both! It seems like town and the lake are getting more rain than they have in some years we’ve been here but we just don’t get squat. Lake Brownwood is so close to being full and that’s such a blessing since that’s the water this entire area counts on for their water supply.
This afternoon, it thundered for hours, the winds picked up, I was so sure we were going to get rain. I even went out and did all the evening chores just in case it rained. Nothing . . not a drop. I just saw on Facebook that a couple of streets in town are closed due to rain.
For those who weren’t reading my blog back in 2011, here’s what the lake looked like when we moved here.
It’s hard to even look at that picture and remember the desperation this area was facing. We’re always thankful for rain and we never seem to have enough on an annual basis. We sometimes get a bit too much at once but we’ll always take what we can get, when we can get it.
As far as today, I believe the rains are going to miss us. I watered the garden this morning, my outside chores are done so I’ll sit and knit for the evening . . I hope. Things have a way of popping up and interrupting my plans!
