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.
