Thoughts on the Texas flooding.
We're safe--for now.
... More rain. Raining, even
as I write. Cities are
under orders to get
out, evacuate; Six
Flags now a water park;
snakes, not in a plane, but
in the wet; people in
trees with fire ants to keep
them company; kids swept
away ... it's the same sad
news on the news. Thought this
was the local, not the
Weather -- the weather is
the news. Other places
burning, turning into
desert. That was us, last
year: prayed for rain, now look
what we've got: too damn much.
warnings on top of flood;
rained deep into the night;
a break 'til a little
while ago: p o u r i n g. Two
inches an hour. They say,
"Turn around, don't drown." Hard
to do when the pattern.
Won't. Change. Perhaps next week.
Nature being s t u b b o r n .....

|Wow, I watched the news this morning they showed footage of Texas, it was hard to believe! Thought of you and Karen, hope you are both safe. Hope the weather gets better so you can enjoy a bit of peace and quiet. You know you mentioned that you prayed for rain...this reminded me of advise that my grandmother always gave us...she told us to be careful what we prayed for, that we just might get it! Great write, very powerful! Stay safe dear friend!

|Rain, rain, go away..don't come back--for a while at least, a loooooooong while!" *grins* You capture the frustrations many Texans are feeling about the weather pattern. You are so right about how it rains here: we either don't get any, or we get too much at once!" Ain't it the truth!! Very well penned; brava! Here's hoping the sun will come out tomorrow! LOL
