The promise of rain

 I can smell it, see the heavy clouds, feel the wind...

I know many of you have had your share of rain and storms.  Some devastating. But here in central Texas, we are in a serious drought.  We have had severe storms all around the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but the rain alludes our area.


This promise of rain will fill the stock tanks, creeks and lakes.  Revive the grassland, make the flowers bloom and refresh the dry earth.

I think I will go outside and do a rain dance, roll my windows down on my car, put the sprinklers on the yard and hang out some laundry...just for insurance..

(I  used Kim Klassen's textures on my pictures)

So praying you have rain soon! I see some parts of TX got some, I hope you are part.

We woke up to a sprinkle then the sun came out.
