It's been raining in south Texas and are we happy! The river is out of it's bounds, roads are closed, streams are running where there isn't a stream, and limbs are down. More to come they say. We'll take it. We awoke to a terrific storm this morning. Hail and wind and rain. We rushed to put John's car in the garage and this morning we only found two dents. Soon the power went off and was off for several hours. Not pleasant to sleep in south Texas without air conditioning. We didn't know until the news this afternoon what caused the outage. Lightening struck something around an oil well and caused an explosion which made a tremendous fire. They didn't say anyone was hurt so I hope that is the case. We haven't seen a rain like this in so long and it is much needed. I hope some of the lakes caught enough water to do some good. So many of them are so low from the drought. Anyway we're all singing in the rain down here and very thankful.
