    Default PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!!!!!

    I believe San Antonio has made up for the two years of drought we had last year and the year before. The city gets 32.92 inches of rainfall in an average year. Rain totals for this year at 5:40 p.m. yesterday reached 33.43 inches and it is still raining. We probably had another 3 inches before 6:30 this morning and the 10-day forecast calls for scattered thunderstorms for the next 9 days.

    We finally caught a 2-day break Monday and Tuesday when the rain let up just enough to frame and pour a slab for new kennels. I've been able to build the kennel panels under the covered patio but I had to erect them in the rain. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to build the roof over them yet so they are basically useless until this rain stops. Meanwhile, the dogs are all running loose in the yard and it is a muddy mess.

    To compound the situation, my daughter went to Las Vegas for a week and dropped her three dogs off for me to board. One is an intact male and I have a female in heat. It just seems like when it rains it pours.

    Sorry Ken, but you are appealing to the wrong crowd.

    But then Ed's been known to 'walk' on water, so mebbe he has control over how much he wants to walk on. Heh heh heh heh

    I'll have Arturo discuss it with his monkey.

    Pat McDonald, a forecaster at the New Braunfels National Weather Service office, said parts of northern Uvalde and Medina counties west of San Antonio received up to 17 inches of rain between 10 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday. Enough is enough.

    Send some our way too. We have had 2.18 inches since Jan. 1. The county is a tinderbox.

    Its so wet here....

    We haven't done any water work in almost a month because we can't get to our swimming water spots because the roads are under water.

    Since June 1st, we've had measurable rain everyday but about 6 (and that's counting today).

    Central Texas (Waco-Temple) went over 40 inches today. Hottest day this summer 95 so I guess there is a silver lining.
    One day closer toa drought regards,
