Send rain …. please

A record-breaking stretch of scorching weather is keeping Texas and the lower Colorado River basin firmly in the grips of severe drought.

The 10 months from October 2010 through July 2011 have been the driest for that 10-month period in Texas since 1895, when the state began keeping rainfall records. Across most of the Hill Country and the Austin area, rainfall since last October is between 16 and 20 inches below normal. Across the eastern counties of Central Texas and the middle Texas coast, rainfall is running more than 20 inches below normal.

I am being baked!!

    Thank you for that FU!

    Reading the first part really depressed me. We are in day 13 or 14 of triple digit temps and it is wearing me down fast. I cannot go outside when the sun is out. Even going to the garage for my laundry is exhausting to me!!

    I know it’s very hard on them to be indoors so much. But what else can you do. The grandkids are the same way, I would let them play outside at sundown until 11 then it wasn’t so bad.

    Mumbles Mason has plenty of money so he thinks it
    is a game between him and the state. He should be disbarred!

    Mumbles is a liar. He said after first appeal he would accept
    if she did not have to come back to Orlando. He said the same
    thing today.
