  •  Thank you Hurricane Manuel! (4+ / 0-)

    I'm saddened by the death and destruction Hurricane Manuel left in its wake as it tore through Mexico but it's bringing desperately needed rain to parched and drought-stricken Central Texas. It has been raining on and off all day, sometimes in very heavy sustained downpours.

    Just a couple of days ago we were expecting a mere half inch or so but now they're forecasting upwards of 4-5" of rain over the course of the day. Yay!

    We just finished with an intense bout of thunder and lightning. Some of the strikes were really close. As soon as my vid uploads to YouTube I'll post it.

    I'm enjoying the rainy and noisy weather. Dusty, not so much.

      Mushu hates thunder, too!!!  He hides.  :(

        as I was sitting at my desk so that he had contact with me on both sides of his body. I picked him up and sat with him on the couch for awhile until he calmed down a bit. He used to love playing in the rain, even during thunderstorms but just in the past couple of years he's become a trembling bundle of furr whenever there's a t-storm.

      I saw the weather forecast this morning and it wasn't clear whether the rain would reach you.  I'm glad to hear that it is!!  :-)

      Cinnamon will protect Dusty ... he growls at thunder!  There's nothin' like the hutzpah of a nine-pound pootie.  ;-)

        that the rain coming here tonight is the same system you're getting!  I looked at a wide-view of the radar, and it's a pipeline of rain streaming up from the Gulf that feeds all the way up deep into Canada!  The length of that stream of weather looks pretty awesome on the radar.

        It hasn't started raining here yet, but I can hear thunder now as it's approaching.
