Things have been tough here in this/our part of Central Texas with the drought! Grasses are brown, trees are dry. Tanks are drying up ( makes for some good fishing but not as much sport as when the tanks are full!) People like my husband and I, who have hay fields, went thru a whole growing season last year and with out one cutting to supplement our feed program. It is that way for all the local ranchers. Hay is being brought in from other areas and of course the prices are escalating. Tough on top of tough in these economic times. And here in Bastrop recently we had a very large wildfire that ravaged lots of acres in the pines as well as pasture land destroying homes and businesses.
But the weatherpeople( being politically correct here!) are telling us that we will have our best chance for some of the wet stuff - RAIN - in the next few days. I will believe it when it happens but the cold front has just moved in as the temps just dropped 15 degrees in the last twenty minutes just like they said they would. ( My poor horses don't know whether to shed or stay hairy with the big temp changes ( 80's to 40's but that is Texas for you!)
Being only slightly superstitions I am going to do my part........my fingers are crossed, I will hand wash my car,. hang my laundry out to dry, and throw a handful of salt out in my back yard in the hopes that I can help induce a much needed down pour. If you have any other suggestions as to what I can do please share them with me. I am already praying!
