Quiet Days of Late Summer 2013


It's still pretty quiet around here.  There is still not very much to blog about.  We need rain so bad again.  In the past two days we have had six heavy thunderstorms pass just to the north of us.  The plants and flowers are dying off.  We have very little grass.  Most of it never came back after last years drought.  I see a lot of farmers are putting in irrigation systems.  I think it is controversial because a lot of irrigation lowers the water table, but I guess I don't blame the people whose livelihood depends on getting their crops to market.

As I was sitting today watching TV, I recorded these videos from my phone.
