The rains started yesterday afternoon and continued all night.  Just slow rain…and our rain gauge has just a little over 4″ in it.  More rain possible for tonight. 

This wasn’t enough to as the locals say “bring the Bayou down”, though it did catch a nice amount of water.   If it rains again tonight, we could see it come down and actually have running water.   This rain was too late to save most of the fish, but it’s the kind of rain that really nurtures the trees and roses…not to mention filling the tanks so the remaining cattle and wildlife have water to drink.  

These photos are rather dark, but you can maybe see the water standing and what’s running off.  That runoff goes through our fields and down to the Bayou.

We’re thankful for every single drop that has fallen.  The Lord always provides.

The kittens found a sanctuary in the greenhouse.  They have buckets with bedding in the greenhouse.  This is Bright Eyes (left) and Clara Belle (right) watching to see what I was going to do.  They’re always on the look out for food or petting.

Bozo spent his time wrapping around our ankles as we were watching the rain.  He’s nearly fearless.

  1. Praise God for the rain. I’m in the Texas HillCountry & we are getting much needed rain. Needs lots more.

    • We’re at the north end of the TX Hill Country and still could use more rain. We were praying for 3 solid days of rain, but are thrilled with the 1 we’ve received.

  2. I have been praying for rain in Texas daily. Your drought pictures and posts about ranchers having to give up their cattle broke my heart.

    • Thank you for your prayers. They do work!

      Tuesdays and Wednesdays are hard as all I see are full cattle haulers heading into the auction house. The neighbor sold off everything as there is no hay for feeding. Don’t know what Texas is going to do without cattle.. We’re praying that we’ll have additional rains to get the winter grasses going good and keep the tanks filled.
