Four minute rain shower

The weather forecasters keep on saying it is going to rain.  Last night as I was feeding Walter I saw some impressive lighting in Mexico.

Those round bushes are purple sage.

Went into town to my now favorite store...Stripes...and picked up some lunch plates. Noticed gas had gone down an additional penny and decided to fill up. The summer promotion of .11 cents off...if you use their Stripes gift card is over. Now they only knock off .03 cents but every little bit helps. Regular gasoline is selling for $3.05 and diesel for $3.52 a gallon.


This afternoon we got a little rain shower that lasted all of four minutes...not what I was hoping for...but I will take it.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  1. It seems that the climate has changed. When I first moved to Texas, it rained every afternoon. It would cloud up, rain, and clear off, all in about an hour. Refreshing. And when I first moved on the property I am on now, you couldn't dig a fence post without hitting water. Not long ago I used a big tractor to dig out a pond and when the tractor was in the whole you couldn't see it from ground level. I didn't hit water. Of course now, all my ponds have water in them.

    1. I remember when I first moved to Houston it would rain every afternoon. Glad your ponds are filled up and may they stay that way.

  2. I'll try to send you some of the rain we're getting down here in Mission. 10" of rain through the gauge since I arrived on 9/6.

    They are talking about rain this week, I guess the summer is over for this part of Washington state.... waiting for next July or when our medical stuff is done & we can go look for better weather!

    1. I would not mind paying those gasoline prices if it came with rain and actual fall temperatures :)

  4. I guess 4 minutes is better than nothing at all.
