Dreary, Damp, Drizzling & Delightful!

As we went about our business Monday morning I was taken aback while listening to local radio by the dismal attitudes regarding the rain.  (Last I knew, we were in the midst of the worst drought in the history of the State of Texas)

"It's a dismal, rainy sloppy morning out there."
"We're in for a nasty rainy day or two."
"This weather front is going to be with us for a few days, more wet, gray, gloom ahead"

At the risk of sounding like a contrarian I have to say I'm loving the rain and the replenishing of our water levels.  As you know, there are 100's of lake homes and recreational property lining the shores of the many reservoirs which supply the water to the Dallas/Fort Worth municipalities.  I found a few photos to remind us  how much of this rainy, sloppy, gloomy, gray, wet and nasty rain days we need to get back into normal water supply levels.

It was reported that DFW Airport received 2" of rain yesterday.  In looking at these photos it's easy to imagine 2" simply disappearing into the ground.  Some lakes are down 22-24 feet! 

I say, let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!

Have a wonderful, water filled week!
