I am also a fan of Double Lake for the reason's Bike Addict mentioned. Although now it is Half Lake as it is mostly dry except by the dam. They need to mow the lake bed!

Here in Virginia we're having record rains. It's incredible how much mold and rot and leaks, and on and on.

I will earnestly pray that we switch weather patterns so you can get some of what we have too much of. Those pictures of the deer are just heartbreaking and I know the ranchers are suffering.

I was in San Antonio in June - and could see how it was already far dryer than eastern Texas... and I know that wasn't even in the truly drought stricken area.

Pray for Texas relief SOON.

Paula

90 days over 100

Today Austin recorded it's 90th day of 100 or more degrees for the year. To hot and too dry for too long!

The good news is that Texas has had above average rain during January, and the lakes are filling up again! 'Thank Goodness'!!

From the news tonight, Lake Buchanan came up just a bit, but Lake Travis actually fell slightly today. A lot of the heaviest rain has been east of us and doesn't fill our lakes. Lake Travis is at near-record lows. It is heart breaking to see it.

On the other hand, I have green in my yard for the first time in about 6 months. I may even have to mow one of these days.

Absolutely! about all we can do is to keep the rain dance 'aflowant, and hope for the best. We are not out of the woods yet by any means, couldn't harvest hay to feed the cattle last year and beef prices are skyrocketing as a result!..

Texas Drought

We need to pray for a tropical depression to settle over the area for a few days, and for La Nina to recede

Depends on where you are if "recovery" means much. Not here, for example.

The US Drought Monitor shows a sobering picture.

We're not out of the woods yet. I got nearly 8 inches of rain in January. We hadn't seen the low water crossings flooded in a long time. Our pond is about a foot shy of being full. The last time it was to the brim was over 2 years ago.

I hope the weather forecasters continue to be wrong.
