Just in case anyone doesn't believe the stories about Texas not getting any rain,

take a look at this photo album from the Texas Dept of Parks and Wildlife.

These photos are of Lake Travis, Mansfield Dam,

and the Pedernales River that flows into Lake Travis.

For you non-Texans, this is in the Texas Hill Country,

just west of Austin.

All those boat houses you see that are sitting on the ground are normally

floating in 20 to 50 feet of water.

We hope you get some good steady rain soon. We heard on the news that Texas needs something like 25 inches to just catch up.

Mona and Weenie, you need to learn to do an Indian raindance.

This drought is just terrible isn't it! We just got word that my uncle's house in Bastrop didn't get any fire damage. He was super lucky!
