September 23, 2005


Today we received some lovely healing rain from Tropical Storm Fay with more expected over the next few days. One can practically hear the earth smacking her lips drinking in the precious liquid from above. This has been a much better year for us here as far as rainfall, but our water tables remain far below the norm. This drought must come to an end soon. These extreme conditions are sucking the life out of any exotic cultivar but the native plants seem to be handling things fairly well.

In honor of our glorious rain today with more to come I offer up a sunrise taken in September 2005. Hurricane Rita had churned through the Gulf of Mexico striking Texas and Louisiana before curling northeast expending her energies and waters on the south. The fourth-most intense Atlantic hurricane ever recorded sure brought us a pretty sunrise. (source: Wikipedia)

Captivating, as usual. By the way, I love how you write. You create such beautiful images. For example, "One can practically hear the earth smacking her lips drinking in the precious liquid from above." Beautiful.

That's another gorgeous picture!

We're getting some much needed, steady rainfall here also.
