Texas Flood

Enough of the rain and the grayness. It’s supposed to be sunny and hot here all the time. Honestly, Dallasites aren’t fans of bad weather – thus, the hole in the stadium roof which protects fans from precipitation while the players must endure it. When the skies are cloudy and gray the entire city falls into a deep malaise. Or a temper tantrum.

The real problem is that Dallas rain is a bucket of yuck. In the tropics the rain has an incredible “washes the world clean” thing going for it. In the Pacific Northwest rain is often a very gentle drizzle that’s rather nice actually. Dallas rain seems to continually pelt me with filth. I was driving this morning, and the rain seemed to make my windshield more gritty with each passing mile.

Note to Environment: Stop with the rain.

    A cool cleansing rain would be welcome [by me]. It was so muggy last night I turned the AC on (roughly 5 months ahead of schedule). This is supposed to be ‘a hot mug of tea and a good book’ season. Even the dogs were grumpy.

    Les and I were driving back from Bandera last night on a motorcyle, and got home just in time to miss the downpour. And it looks like the rain continues… damn that global warming!

    Hey Christie: I look forward to meeting you Thursday evening. This posting struck me as very, very funny. Especially the note to the environment. Glenn

    Um, thanks, C. You asked the environment to stop the rain, and now it looks like we’re going to get sleet instead.
