I have been tinkering with the idea of starting a blog for a while now. Today I decided I would take the plunge.
It is a hot and humid day in Del Rio, Texas. Thursday night, August 11, 2011 around 10:50 p.m. the sky opened up and put an end to the drought in this area, at least temporarily. It rained 4.47 inches in 55 minutes. We live outside the city limits in Val Verde county, so there are no storm drains. The water kept rising on the cinder block fence and for a while there I was afraid it would come into the house. The front and backyard were a lake. Wish I had had my camera but I think I either left it in Houston or I lost it.
The driveway, the carport, front porch and back porch are covered in mud and storm debris. Was hoping it would rain once more as the weather channel predicted but alas it has not happened. Really need to start the clean up but hate to waste water to do so...that's my excuse and I am sticking to it :-D
