365 Days of Photos – Day 138

We usually get enough rain in Texas to enjoy Spring flowers and some green grass. However, the heat and dry weather shows up very early (usually by mid-May) and the grass quickly turns brown.

The first time I visited Texas was over Memorial Day weekend 1998. The temperatures were already in the low 100’s.

This year has been very unusual. It has been raining so much that our lakes have gone from unusable to full. Our rivers are overflowing and our grass is still green!

I took this picture earlier this evening. It is not unusual in Texas to see waterfalls with no water. But right now the waterfalls are bursting with water.

Its nice that the Texas drought is subsiding….but I must admit, I am tired of the rain! I’m ready for big blue skies and lots of heat!!
