AND IT BEGINS AGAIN

Well, here we go again...


Pouring rain today, though it comes and goes.  We are also under Flash Flood watches and now, to top it all off, there is a tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico that could very well be heading this direction mid week as either just  heavy rain or a full fledged tropical storm.

As one weather forecaster said last night, "I hate to say this but we could be looking at a repeat of the Memorial Day flood event over the next few days".


Needless to say, stuck in town again this weekend (though if it lets up a bit, might try a visit tomorrow to check on things).  Thank goodness I was able to mow and edge last weekend or else we might have been looking at renting a herd of goats to graze 24/7, ha.

Hope your weekend is off to a better start!

Good grief! Did you get your order off for the ark plans yet?

How devastating this weather has been for your state. Safe wishes for everyone affected by this extremely wet weather. Wouldn't it be ever so helpful if the rains could be directed to the areas most in need of them? Worldwide!

Relax and plan, that is what rainy days are for.

rebecca said...

Crazy weather and yep, we're in hurricane season now aren't we? I'm in Corpus so we're keeping an eye on things as well. Stay safe!

1st Man,

Were expecting the same weather. Last night the western part of Oklahoma had tornadoes.
I'm starting to build a new ark just in case, lol...... Stay safe and dry!

Oh dear.
I hope it eases off quickly.

well, we have the same temps, maybe hotter, but only the slightest bit of rain. my weeds were drooping a couple days ago. i have rarely ever seen that. i think we are going to have a 6 month summer this year.

Joani said...

Arizona would love some of that rain. The temps are up past 100....today 104. Have to get things done very very early!

Texas Rose said...

Yep, lotta rain forecast for the next week. Keep your umbrella, floaties, and rain boots handy!
What's left of my vegetable garden after the last deluges will be wiped out now. And so much of my baby fruit got knocked/blown off the trees in the last rains :(
Y'all stay safe!

Hope the rains aren't too bad.... no flooding!! Loved your sunset farm pictures...gorgeous!! Have a safe weekend. M

Linda said...

Oooh, that's too bad since your area of the state has quite enough rain this year.

1st Man said...

LOL, I've thought about googling how to build an ark, ha. Thanks, oh yes, it would be so nice if we could move it around to the places that need it.

1st Man said...

Amen, from your lips to our ears, ha.

1st Man said...

Yep, it's that time of year. Hope this isn't a sign of an active season. Y'all keep an eye out for it as well. Corpus is in the crosshairs too.

1st Man said...

Send me those ark plans, ha. You stay safe!

1st Man said...

I hope so too, but alas, I think we're in for some crazy rains. Parts of our area got 6 inches of rain today. More tomorrow and then tropical trouble next week. sigh.

1st Man said...

That's crazy for you all huh? Normally cooler and wetter huh? We're hot and too wet. The weather is all screwed up this year.

1st Man said...

104? Wow. That is crazy hot. I wish we could get you some of this rain. We've definitely had enough.

1st Man said...

Dang, I know it was REALLY heavy today down your direction. I think we had about an inch here in town and at the farm. But it looks like we've got some bad rains coming this week if that tropical depression comes this way.

1st Man said...

Well thank you for that. Sunsets are so pretty aren't they? About an inch today but more tomorrow and LOTS more next week, sigh. Thanks for stopping by!!

1st Man said...

Oh we have had so much. It's crazy this year. Normally we get these rains in relation to tropical things but this year we got it with just thunderstorms and now we have tropical activity.

I hope y'all will be out of the path of the storms (both city and farm). Stay safe, TRY not to fret about things (easier said than done) and know you have a whole bunch of people thinking of y'all :)

Anke said...

Oh no... I hope it will not get as bad as it was last time!

Brigid said...

As someone that worked as a professional pilot for 20 plus years - those are some very ugly clouds (for lack of a better term) and not typical. That's the kind of stuff we'd fly around and not through if we could help it. I hope you don't have a repeat of the Memorial Day storms and you both will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Diana said...

.. and while we in the northwest have been facing dry and hot days/weeks. Summer came early, and what we wouldn't do for some rain.

StoneAcresFarm said...

I wish we could get some rain in our part of Kentucky.

1st Man said...

Thank you!!

1st Man said...

In hindsight now, not at bad but still some flooding.

1st Man said...

Just now getting back to replying to comments. thanks for the wishes. Much appreciated always!! And thanks for the clarification of the clouds, I thought they looked kinda rough.

1st Man said...

I hope you get some of this rain!! Thank you for stopping by!!

1st Man said...

and ditto for you, this storm is moving up to the north east, I hope some gets dragged your way!!
