As I'm typing, this is what's going on outside.
For those of you who may not know, I am a weather junkie. If I were to change careers right now and go back to school, I would probably major in meteorology.
Whenever stormy weather is headed our way, not matter what the variety, you will find me with more than one radar at my fingertips. When things get really bad, I'll be at my desk with the local TV station on and radars on my desktop, laptop and Ipad.
No storm is going to sneak up on me.
As I said last week, our area of Texas has been in a five year drought and I'm learning that there are a few things I missed during that drought.
This is a given.
But how cool is this? Instead of a pool, we now have a lagoon.
So long as there are no creatures, I'm cool with this.
We have puddles!
And I will add that the dogs love them. Of course, we no longer have any idea what color our kitchen floor is. I have vague memories of it being something other than brown.
Ah, yes... These have become a familiar site.
One I have most assuredly grown to love.
And all this rain means our Trumpet Flowers are blooming.
Pretty soon, our fence will be covered with them.
Occasionally, though, there's too much of a good thing, making life inconvenient for some.
This is an aerial view of Purcell, Oklahoma, where my oldest daughter lives. Yes, she and her family are safe, their house situated on high ground.
And I'm sure you've heard about the devastation in the Texas Hill Country.
Needless to say, people in both of these areas could use our prayers.
What about you, do you watch the radar when it storms? Do you like to be prepared?
What's your favorite kind of weather?
