It's raining, it's been raining for a few hours, it's so nice.
Still it would need to rain for a few days to really help.

Good. At least there will be some relief to the wells out that way.

We got about 1.5 inches out here and we could use about 10 more. But very thankful for what we did get...

It's a start but the long term out look is not good.
It does look like we will get more this weekend.

That will help just a little bit, the lakes are already really low and they will just keep getting lower.
The storms last night died and never made it to us. Bummer

I remember a time when you mentioned that you had just washed your ride and it rained... Obviously that was a different season.

It rained so often last year that I had to wash our rides weekly. This year, monthly is enough.

Well it used to rain here at one time.

If she will change direction just a bit we could get a lot of rain.

Yes, our news was talking about this a few nights ago. Storms like this in the pacific bring lots of rain to West Texas if they track in just right.

Nope. I think it would take 4 or 5 of these to make up the deficit here in Texas.

Right now it looks like we could get a good rain event this next weekend.
