We have been a severe water droubt for a while now. That we are limited to when we water our lawn. Some places here it looks like the desert they way the grass is dead and the plants are no longer there.
I love to sit in my mother in laws backyard and look at the canal, but lately that canal is dried up and ugly. We had wished for so long that they would add water to it. But we are coming into the rainy season and knew that at one point during the summer it would get better.
Well yesterday we had one heck of a rainstorm. My kids sat next to my mother in law on the couch and would not move. My dogs said hidden under my bed, that I never saw before! It was lightening and thundering so bad that even of couple of jolts gave me a scare. I went out into the garage and recorded what it was like out there. Here is a little clip.
Then after the rain stopped. We looked out into the canal and it was completely full! I mean it must have rained a good 5 to 6 inches in an hour! I couldn't believe it. Now the canal doesn't look so ugly. Thank goodness. We have more to come this is just the beginning!
