R-A-I-N

Yes, that's rainwater.

If you are not located here in South Texas, you might not understand why I am posting about rain. It's been very, very hot here lately. Tonight, the weather man said that we broke our 1990 record of triple digit heat! And it's expected to continue for another 2 days or so. I believe we're at 11 or 12 days straight. Everything is brown and dry. The dust is pretty heavy and we are wilting away here! BUT....

We had a huge thunderstorm this evening during dinner time! It was wonderful to see the water coming down from the sky. I think it rained for about twenty minutes or maybe thirty even. And there was huge cracks of thunder and a bit of lightning along with a snappy wind to blow the trees and rain sideways a bit. Very exciting to watch. So we watched after dinner. And I tried to snap some pictures without getting my camera wet. This is our sidewalk out front. I liked the way the water makes it looks gelatinous.

Naw, you didn't get any rain, you've just been in the heat so long, you're hallucinating! It's a mirage, like of an oasis in the old films about the Legionaries marching across the Sahara. ;)

I didn't even hear the distant sound of thunder over here.

Thien, we got a real good rain last night here at my house but also while we were IN CHURCH. Check out the picture of the rainbow I got here.

We were sure blessed by the much-needed rains!!!

I'm going to be greedy and pray for more rain. :) I don't care if it was a hallucination. I enjoy myself. ;)
