Welcome rains

Made a trip to the local hospital so my mother could have her monthly labs performed. We have gone in the mornings, noon and now after lunch and the wait seems to be the same. It is obvious they need more personnel in the registration department. They will not draw blood or do any work unless you register and present your insurance or put down your cash first and the wait is long!!!


Last night I commented to mother that I had received a Rain Alert e-mail from the Weather Channel, 40 percent chance, we both had a good laugh!

I will be darn if the sky did not turn menacing as we left the hospital.  Were planning on a trip to HEB but fearing another encounter with hail we decided to go home instead.  We timed it perfectly as it began to rain minutes after I put the car in the garage.


It rained for quite a while but it was that beneficial type of rain that soaks in and does not run off. While an estimate...the Weather Channel is saying .41 of an inch. It reached a high of 96 today but after the welcome rains it went down to a very comfortable 73 degrees.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  1. It rained like the devil here in Laughlin Nevada! I went outside under the cover of the car port and watched it for quite awhile. Love the smell of rain in the desert! May sound silly but it makes me happy! Of course, my shop ceiling leaked real bad! I didn't like it the way it was anyway so now I have an excuse to tear it out and do it my way. ha ha ha ha my very best to you and your mother.

    1. I was so surprised that it has been raining so much in Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico but rain is always welcomed in the desert.

      Just out of curiosity was wondering if you had ever been to Burningman in Black Rock City, Nevada?

      Thanks for dropping by.

  2. A cooling rain is always welcome this time of year in Texas.

    1. How fortunate, would have loved to have received that much but I will settle for what we got.

      Nope, you really didn't think that worthless owner of his would keep his word did you? He has been telling me the same thing for a year until Walter took matters into his own hands so to speak :D

    1. On the weather channel radar I could tell it was raining in Sanderson, hopefully you got a good amount for the wildlife out there.
