Its Raining Its Pouring.....Ty Went Mad

By Ty:

So for those of you who didn't know, this has been like the hottest and driest year on record in West Texas.  Its hit 100+ over 35 times.  Dirt devils dominate the sky line on my drive home.  All the lakes have dried up and it even got to the point that construction started on a water reclamation plant that will recycle sewer water....Don't believe me?  Click this link

Anyway, today something incredible happened.  I drove home today with huge thunderheads looming over me and dominating the sky.  They stayed this way for several hours, and just when I was about to write it off as another tease, it rained........first some sprinkles with some nice soft thunder in the distance (which Danielle and I enjoyed from the hammock).....then downpour! Torrential downpour with constant booms and flashes of thunder and lightening.  It was incredible and soooooooo needed.

As the night stormed on the excitement of the whole thing built up inside me.  It got to be so much to the point that the following happened.  Let's just say that too much heat followed by a whole lot of rain can do strange things to people......well no maybe just me.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
