Rain in Texas: your attendance required

After a good long drought and quite a few teases with sprinkles, we finally got some good hard rain this morning. Drought’s not over, but it sure is nice to see and hear.

And watching a good rain is required of Texans. You should be back from your required pre-storm grocery run by now, so go watch. I remember when David Letterman returned to TV after switching networks, it hadn’t rained in something like 100 days. It started raining during his first show back, so on the commercial, everyone in the apartment complex came out at the same moment to look at the rain.

The downspout needs a chain before it'll hit that barrel. Oh, and check the pool turning into poo.

Hurry! Move the plants so we can put the barrel in place!

Our rain barrel, 60 gallons, I think, ended up overflowing. We are psyched.
