I am super grateful for all the rain that we have been getting in south Texas this week.
Last summer was so incredibly dry without even a hurricane to dampen things up a little. People lost whole crops and hay was the highest I have ever seen…and we are talking about some pretty crappy hay too! Even better than all the rain though is the fact that it came down in light enough to cause very minimal flooding.
Usually here it’s dry or drown.
Here’s hoping we have a wet (but not flooding) year in which the local farmers can have a chance to make a come back. Because I also appreciate the local growers who provide us with reasonably priced foodstuffs.
