    Not that I'm complaining after all the snow falling north of here that many of you are dealing with but in less than a 12 hour period yesterday I saw very heavy rain, quarter size hail and last night on the way to work, snow flurries. Forecast high for Friday is 60 and 70 for Saturday. Go figure.

    1.39 inches of rain and then white frosting. I can't wait until Spring!

    You are welcome to send Texas some rain. My back yard resembles concrete. I don't bother to water it anymore. It's just bermuda grass.

    Gypsi, I thought you were getting some rain this year, unless it is like around here a lot of time, showing rain but never hitting the ground.

    Kebee,

    We have had some, but not nearly what we should have to make up what we didn't get last year, and the year before. lakes are 8 ft low. Some parts of the metroplex got rain, but I am on the southwest edge, they get an inch, I got 1/10th of an inch.

    Am seriously considering bugging out north and west and just wintering in Texas. Keeping the garden, chickens and bees alive here over the summer with the extended drought is too hard. Believe it or not, fish are easier.
