A hot wind danced around lightning in the dead of night in Keller and brought with it some rain. Finally. I woke up this morning to the sound of raindrops making their wonderful sound on my skylights. Yesterday, I had hoped that the smell and the stillness in the area were good indicators that rain was coming. I had been fooled in the past.
Many of us wondered if our area was turning into a desert. Our vegetable gardens, many trees and shrubs are dead and just haven't tolerated the heat and drought. With temperatures over 100 degrees and no rain since the first week in June the area's soil had hardened and was dried and cracked.
But last night, the sky remembered and shed its healing tears and we rejoiced in the fact that we didn’t have to water everything today.
And we give that a big thumbs up!
