Finally, Some Wet

Texas is experiencing its worst drought in recorded history.  Yeah, worse than the Dust Bowl.  Over 90% of the state has been in the highest level of drought, “exceptional” for several months.

Yesterday a weather system started on the western edge of the state and began to bring serious amounts of rain.  The amazing part is that five or six inches, while welcome will not resolve the situation.  Most of the state is well over 10 inches behind in rain.  But this does help and is a start.  It is needed as this winter is predicted to be a dry one for Texas.

I got 1.14″ starting Saturday night.  The Dallas area, while also in drought conditions, is better off than the majority of the state.
