East Texas Rainy May

East Texas Rainy May

It has rained here in East Texas about every day or so in the month of May.  I have lived here for over twenty years and have never seen it rain like this.  A few years back we had a drought in East Texas, well today we do not have a drought anywhere in Texas!

There has been a deluge of water flowing in the streets.  A clear day one minute, the next the clouds cry out gallons of water that flood the roads and drainage systems.  It can be pouring rain, then a minute later it stops and the sun comes out, bringing high humidity with it.

Thunder claps wake you at three in the morning.  Your cellphone sings out the emergency broadcast system 1000 Hz tone warning of severe weather in the local area.  It may be a flash flood warning or a tornado watch.  And after a few minutes to a few hours, it is over until the next time your cellphone sings the 1000 Hz.

Water is required for life.  Too much water destroys life.  What we need is a balance of rain and sun in East Texas.  A paradox, we need the rain, however not all of the rainfall totals in a year in one month.  I am sure we will have more green pines trees after all of this rain.
