Work for the ...

night rain is coming





My work? I was on my way to Willis (Texas) to run some needed errands. I had to mail some letters, get a couple of things at the grocery store, and pick up some books from the library--ones I had ordered to come to this library from Conroe and Tomball.






It rained at Willis, while I was shopping in the grocery store. Willis is a fifteen (15) minute drive from our house.




It had not rained yet at home. But give it about 20 minutes after I got back and we had this (rain). It amounted to just under an inch in those few minutes, Houston had a lot more, those people had some street flooding.



That was enough to make standing water on the golf course back there. It was wet enough already from the day before's rain to cause this earlier in the morning:






Surely this isn't global warming? Already?

We've had a really wet summer as have other parts of the world, while some places had record breaking heat.

Wish we had some of your rain. We've had a fairly dry summer and the fire danger is quite high. I do recall a few extreme down pours while visiting Texas ...

Texas gets more rain than any other state. We could use some of that here in Hickville, but I don't want to deal with flooding.
I suppose that golfing on a soggy course wouldn't be much fun.

Wish we had gotten some rain. It thundered and carried on something awful but it only teased us. Other parts of the county got over 2 inches and wind damage though. Less than 4 miles from here they got an inch. We only got a few pitiful sprinkles. Sigh.

BTW, I guess I made mention of your feet to Jamie Dawn!! See! She agrees that they are not pretty!! :)

Yeah we have had no rain and the heat has just been unbearable. I wish it would go away now.

I love when those dark clouds roll in.

My battery is fine now. Thanks for asking.

I am going to make pancakes now for 4 boys.

Take care xx

I don't mind the rain everyday as long as it doesn't bring a hurricane with it.... We live on the North side of town ( 1960 / I-45) area. Nice to see a fellow blogger in the general area.

Does your wife know you go around taking pictures of women in shorts walking in the rain?
Global Warming?? No, it's been like this my whole life. "For a few shall be chosen to roast without rainfall, a few to get just the right amount of rain and the others I will try to drowned." (that was a paraphrase of course)
And below, Missed the boat eh Jim.
