Everything is green here...

If it wasn't for Hurricane Alex and Tropical Hermine, things would have been a lot worse, more similar to 2005/2006. Whew...

August was pretty hot though. I noticed that more and more trees were beginning to drop leaves to conserve moisture everywhere and grass was getting scorched. Just didn't expect to get that much rain from Hermine. That helped a lot except for several spots that got too much rain unfortunately.

Yep. Everything of mine that survived the summer is looking much better than it did a month ago.

Things in San Antonio have improved too. La Nina = drought. We got lucky with these storms.
