I appreciate the well wishes from all.
My little town got flooded a couple of weeks back, so I left and drove to Port Aransas, where it flooded for two of the three days that I was there.
So I drove up to Llano, Tx, where the river came down twenty-something feet, so I came back home. It's raining here now.
I know that lives and homes and vehicles have been lost. I have family from one end of Texas to another, and to my knowledge all have been okay. My
best wishes go out to those adversely affected by the weather.
But I gotta say. This is the closest thing I've seen to spring in the better part of a this century. It is an old version of normal that hasn't been
here since before I started driving. We gotta take the bad with the good.
The good is I can't recall driving from my place (near the New Mexico border) all the way to the coast, and seeing so much green. Green and wet.
When you get around the hill country, the Black-eyed Susans and Indian Blankets start at the edge of the roads and just expand all the way up the
hillsides. Texas is being renewed.
It will make for a beautiful summer. We will have lakes to go to that don't look like they are dying. No more stench of stagnated water. The
duck-weed will be swept from the river-beds. The fish will swim further upstream than they have been able to in quite a while.
I have yet to complain as collectively, Texas has been hoping and praying for rain for a very long time now.
Again, thanks to all for the well wishes.
