While some parts of Texas have been getting hammered by both rain and hail we have been lucky and mostly have received beneficial showers. Last night at 4:00 a.m. we had a thunder and lightning show followed by a strong storm.
The weather guy said that if we did not receive rains from Mexico by midnight they would probably not make it into our part of the state. Since I do not trust the weather forecasters I made preparations to cover dad's old car in case we got hail like the Austin area did yesterday.
I have a funny anecdote to share, on Wednesday, May 19th they announced storms with the possibility of hail. I have my stash of cardboard boxes so I placed them over the old ones. The neighbor across the street started to do the same with his truck and his wife's car. She then came out and yelled at him so he removed them from her vehicle.
When the hail arrived...thankfully it was only pea size...it was coming down hard and that poor man had to rush outside to cover his wife's windshield...jajajajajaja 😇
I on the other hand rushed outside but to find Muñeca (the little orange cat) since she is so small and I was afraid she would get hurt. She was frightened hiding in the back of the old washing machine so I grabbed her and brought her inside. She unlike her siblings is not afraid of me.
Yesterday two more neighbors joined the club and had their cars covered with cardboard and old bedspreads...and I am the one that started that trend last year after the hail storm broke dad's old car side mirrors and chipped the taillights. I'm sure I was the laughing stock of the block but now I have company :D
It has been very muggy with humidity levels in the '70s which is oppressive and temperatures in the mid 90's with a heat index in the triple digits.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
