I owe you two posts, right? Days 3 and 4. So really, right now you're in the middle of a posting drought. A deficit of posting. I'll catch up over the next few days, but just a quick post for tonight.
The drought in Texas has been so severe. You hear about droughts, but this one you could see and feel. This summer, when it was 112, we couldn't swim. Water levels were so low and the water was so warm that all of the good swimming holes and rivers, etc., were full of bacteria. Crops were dying. Livestock was being abandoned. It's a natural disaster of an alarming magnitude, and you can feel it, I mean really feel it, when you are outside.
And really, truly, despite the mud and the gloom, I am so grateful for several consecutive days of rain. It's glorious. It's wet and soaking and miraculous and good. Welcome, rain, welcome. Stay as long as you'd like. We've missed you.
