Wishing for Drought!!

babywatson(7)May 24, 2005

I know some of you are having a drought, and I wish I could ship some of the dismal, rainy, chilly weather we've been having in Virginia. It's late May and it's warmer in Alaska today than here!! I think I'm gonna go on a rampage if I don't get some sun and heat soon.

Be careful what you wish for...I am in the Houston area which needs rain and is so hot and humid right now. I believe the heat index is over 100 degrees.....

I have to agree with summergirl. Our area is in severe drought, though we have been blessed to have gotten slightly more rain than areas within a short distance from us. I live about ten miles from other family members and in their area if they do not get rain due to Hurricane Dennis, the farmers will lose their crops. People around here know all too well what an impact this can have--just a few years ago hundreds of farmers in this area had no harvest because the crops were ruined.

Don't EVER wish for drought! That's tempting fate, and no matter how bad constant rain is, drought is MUCH worse.

Amazing! I posted that back in July. Now we're in a severe drought with red flag warnings and there have been some grass/brush fires already in south central Texas. I've got to channel some rainstorms!
