Storm systems

We have been having storm after storm system move through the area.  Yesterday, when I heard on the news that we could have from 4 to 10 inches of rain this weekend...I really did not believe it...guess I should have.

I can not go anywhere as I do not drive in the rain, unless it is an absolute emergency.  So what is left to do?  Well, with my worthless DISH service it certainly does not involve watching TV or web surfing.  Lost both several times yesterday.  If anyone is considering satellite TV, think twice in particular if you live in the Del Rio area.

With the new kitchen leak, kept on getting up throughout the night to dump the bucket.  In one of those occasions I happened to notice that I had a message.  So at four o'clock in the morning I am listening to a message I got at 10:30 p.m.

I have taken to turning off the ringer after 9:00 p.m. as people seem to think they can call anytime. The same goes for early morning callers. I do not care if you get up at 5:00 a.m. I am not and have never been a morning person. For goodness sake, I have an elderly loved one who needs her rest....grrrrr!!!!!!!!

Blogger has a new tool called "featured post"...as usual, I messed up and can not make the picture appear smaller...sorry about that!

In anticipation of the 2016 CASI Chili Cook-off, I decided to feature a post I wrote back on July 24, 2013 with tips for those contemplating attending this year's festivities.  If you have any questions please do not e-mail me at terlinguadreams@gmail.com as I seldom check that account.  Please use terlinguadreams@outlook.com .  Thank you.

This is where I say good night, may you all have Terlingua Dreams...but since I never could go back to sleep after 4:00 a.m. I will begin my day.  Have a good one and stay dry if you live in Texas.


  1. Don't you just hate it when you wake up so early and know you will never be able to get back to sleep? That happened to me yesterday, and I needed to nap several times throughout the day. Hope you stay dry - is the rain over for now?

    1. Unfortunately, with my sleep deprivation I know too well what it is like not to be able to go back to sleep.

      We are under a flash flood watch until Sunday afternoon. It quit raining for now but more rain is expected later on this evening and into Monday.

      Our online newspaper is not very good but the Ciudad Acuna newspaper reports flooding across the border in Mexico. Said they got 4 inches but is not clear as to when that amount fell...if last night or since the rains began.

  2. We got quite a bit of rain here, but not as bad as further south nearer the coast. BTW, I sent it on your way. . . you can thank me later.

    1. Lol Dizzy, I thought I had the system on the Pacific that moved through northern Mexico and then crossed the border into Texas to thank :D


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thank you for your readership.
