We had nearly 10 minutes of rain today. I heard the thunder rolling and I thought “Rain maybe?” I have learned through the bitter experience of this long dry summer that all the symptoms of rain don’t necessarily mean rain will actually fall. But there was a second and a third roll of thunder and down came the rain. It wasn’t enough rain, but it was better than the nothing we’ve been getting.
There is a tropical storm down Texas way that might just show up to this region. If it doesn’t curve up into Canada or go straight out to sea before it reaches us. Still, it’s the best hope we’ve had in a long time.
