Some Rain In Dallas At Last!

I certainly do not think that our governor’s prayers did this but I awoke this morning to the wonderful sound of rain falling on my roof. Yesterday there had been a 30% forecast for rain – experience has shown me to not take those forecasts seriously until they hit at least 50%. So I am pleasantly surprised.

The Dallas area was just two days shy of breaking the record for the most consecutive days of triple-digit Fahrenheit temperatures. The city of Irving had implemented drought-condition by-laws (not sure how long that link will remain valid) to reduce lawn watering and such.

It is supposed to rain until about 5:00pm. I sure hope that that is enough downpour to ease the pressure on the area’s water supplies.
