    Dennis,
    I would love to have good old fashion June thunderstorms that sweep across the state with blue clouds and Januarys with drizzly, wet cold 40 degree weather. Those wet, cold days make good hog hunting weather here.
    hugs, Brandi

    I lived in Manvel during the floods of 1979. (But I left town on both weekends)

    30" in 24 hour period the 1st weekend. 24" in 24 hours the 2nd weekend.

    Brother lived in Lake Jackson, cousin lived in Angleton. Always got frustrated waiting on the trains... Nicknamed it Anglepound cuz it wasn't worth a "ton".

    Wow! Can anyone believe this weather? What's up with these temperatures in December? I have my Christmas lights up on my house and almost feel silly turning them on. Except for all the sales and emails telling me to spend my money, this seems more like spring weather without the rain. I watered my yard heavily on Saturday because it was so dry. On Sunday, I see there are new green sprouts of bermuda popping up. My St. Augustine has never turned yet. It's still green and my wife was up in the middle of the night and noticed five does in the green yard having a midnight snack. For the last week, we've had the house open during the daytime and a window open at night with the ceiling fan going. If I could go hijack a storm from the northwest US, I'd do it. We sure need rain and I'd take a cool/cold snap along with it happily. To make matters worse, my grandson and I split over a cord of wood on Saturday. We haven't had a single fire in the fireplace this year. At least my ugly pile of trees waiting to be firewood is a lot smaller.

    Yesterday, our neighbor called to say that they had lots of minnows. They had expected company to go fish on their dock, but plans changed and fishing didn't get done. My wife and grandson went over and fished for about 2 hours while I was doing tractor work along our shoreline. The grandson caught a mess of crappie. One of them was huge. My neighbor said it's the biggest crappie they've ever seen taken out of our lake. My wife has pictures on her cell phone, so I'll try to get them and post later.

    Yep, I just got back from taking our little dog for a walk in the woods in the park. I figured it was light enough at 7 a.m. and 65 degrees with a nice strong south breeze was nice. I figured it might be warmer than I preferred later. But the drought is getting serious; 1.7" for the month of Oct. and .03" for Nov. Sure hope it rains soon.

    My son and his wife own a bail camp here on the coast,, they always let us know when the flounder run starts,, this is when the flounders leaves the bays because of the cool water, headed back to the gulf warm water..
