The streak remains intact. It's raining again.
I think this one is just a shower, not a storm. But rain is rain, and it still counts.
Lucky you. Got 5" of rain in about 45 minutes here today. Reckon I'll go out and drop a line in the south pasture, see if I can catch any of the catfish that been escapin' from Donald's catfish ponds.
Meantime I just got home and I need to pull on the hip boots and check for stranded sheep in the pastures. At least it's easier to spot the gators at night, but I ain't lookin' forward to stepping on any damn cottonmouths and floating nests of fire ants.
Looks like the tropics are gettin' active, and we be screwed (precipitation wise) here in Florida. I'll get a few extry gas tanks for the gas grill, and hook up the ol' manual pump, and if the 'lectricity goes out, I got horses to ride, livestock to eat, and catfish to catch. I keep hopin' the 'lectricity will go out and make the yankees all move out because they can't survive without air conditioning.
