but why is it in Texas you either have a drought or a flood??? WHY? My brother is staying with me until the 26th. He is working off his room/board and a airplane ticket. Part of his duties are getting my garden into shape and re-caulking/painting the house. With the drought and 67 days of 100+ I had no summer garden past June and I had high hopes for a fall/winter garden. Well of course it decided to start raining! We are in a drought for two years and now they are shutting down parts of IH35 because 13 inches fell in 8 hours a little ways north of here and we have had about six inches in less than 24 hours according to my rain gauge. Not good "dig up the garden" weather, that's for sure. BUT I'M NOT COMPLAINING!!!!
