rain, rain, everywhere

It has actually stopped raining the past couple of days, after weeks upon weeks of rain every day. The drought in central Texas is definitely over, a flooded state in its place.

Our local lake was closed before Memorial Day and will remain so for at least the next two months. Camp sites with their electrical hookups, bath houses & facilities, picnic shelters, boat docks . . . all well under water. This sketch is from an overlook at the dam; the dam road is under, running along the left side of this sketch. Water rapids continue to rush out of the water gates; here water is just about to run over the emergency overflow.

Our own yard is a saturated, soppy sponge. Thank You, Lord, for providing the former and later rains --- Are we done yet?
