It Rained......... a lot....

I have lots I could say about the flooding in Texas right now.
Our hearts are broken over Wimberley.
If you've read my blog awhile, you know that my family
vacations there a lot.  We were last there in May of 2014.
We love Wimberley and the ankle deep Blanco River.
So sad.

These two pictures are of the golf course behind my house this morning.
It always gets some run off from the San Jacinto River when it floods.
There is a reason my neighborhood is built up above the golf course.
It's at least a five foot drop down my back fence to the course.

I now have egrets, etc. for my viewing pleasure.
And at night........ the frogs sing like I've never heard.
I think a million came in with the water!
It's definitely a swamp experience!

Pray for the flood victims!

Weather is certainly unusual these days. We've had the driest May on record (since 1937), and there you are in Texas being inundated with wet. I'm glad you are safe. I hadn't heard anything about Wimberly so I'll look it up.

Glad you are safe on high ground Linda.
The news reports are really upsetting and so sad.
Life can change in the blink of an eye.
No more drought for Texas, hope balance is restored very soon!
Take Care

Oh, Linda, it must break your heart to see Wimberley so challenged -- I had forgotten which town you visited. But I am glad you are safe. The drought is over but don't you wish it could hit a happy medium?
