President Obama just declared parts of Texas disaster areas due to all the wild fires we've had. Luckily we have not personally had to evacuate, although it came close a couple of weeks ago. I sat in my back yard and watched the helicopters and crop planes dump water on the fires about 10 minutes north of us.
We had rain last week. A hard, heavy and fast rain. It started out of the blue with crazy wind, then the rain came. The mister and I were on our way out for sushi date night. We had to quickly re-route our trip as we came to several flooded in dead-ins. Then as fast as it came, it went.
Yesterday, I saw clouds again.
Then here came the rain...and there went the power.
And there went our cowering dog, under my feet for the whole evening.
