The southern part of Val Verde County is in severe drought condition when it rains it is mainly in the northern part of the county by Lake Amistad. Thursday night we finally got some much-needed precipitation.
We go weeks without rain and when we are lucky enough to get some it seems to always come with drama. We had high winds, electrical storms, and heavy rains. The next day you would have never known it was it not for my full rain catchment system and that the shade trees, as well as those pesky mesquites, had come to life.
April is one of my favorite months as Fiesta is celebrated in San Antonio. Though I have not attended a Fiesta event in years I love watching all the coverage on TV. Saw a girl that looked just like a friend of mine and texted her to see if it was her. She texted me back saying she was too old to attend Fiesta...too old? My friend is a partier, how can that be? After sitting on my derriere for a week catching all the action...I understood what she meant! Glad I was able to attend this event when I was younger.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
Though my beloved Spurs are no longer contenders in the NBA playoff that does not mean I am not watching my other teams. There is a game or two practically every day. So if you do not see me in the blogosphere don't worry I tend to disappear until after the NBA Finals.
