I'm about to turn the sprinklers on. What a colossal bust. To add insult to injury, just got a popup on my phone from Twitter - In case you missed it: "David Tillman's photo: It looks like a wet day Monday...." Grrr.

I hit some very heavy rain on the beltway heading home from the office in West Houston. But than it was like I crossed a line and every thing dried up. Just barely a drizzle at the house in Stafford. And nothing since.

HGX was worried this morning that the CAP was way too strong to break. That verified. Those lucky enough to get some rainfall, count your blessings. I'm afraid this may be a harbinger of things to come for the next couple of months.

Only a narrow line of showers and a few thunderstorms moving across SE TX this evening. Stronger storms are NE of the Houston metro area. Get ready for some awesome weather days across SE TX from tomorrow through Thursday.

Why is anyone mad about lack of rain? We had a solid month of it and some of our yards are still water logged. We could do for a couple of dry weeks.

Temps in the 50s across much of SE TX with showers and scattered thunderstorms are moving across the Upper TX Coast this morning. Some additional showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the morning before the activity pushes offshore. Skies will begin to clear this afternoon with several days of cool and dry weather to end the week.

Yea, I'm definitely not complaining that things didn't pan out as forecasted since we have had PLENTY of rain here in Southeast, TX. My property is waterlogged and will take awhile to dry out. Jason, I highly doubt you had to turn on your sprinkler. lol

Pretty good lightning display to the South towards Lake Jackson. Very angry churned up looking clouds too.

1) I had my yard treated yesterday and it needed to be watered-in. I was counting on that rain to do it. Rain water is ideal. My sprinkler backflow got destroyed by the freeze, even though it was drained and wrapped. I just discovered this yesterday when I went to turn it back on. So, I had to move a sprinkler around the lawn, and I have a big lawn, so it takes some work. I have to finish today.

2) Summer is coming and we’ll take what we can get. As you saw by the recent drought monitor reports, it won’t take long at all to dry us out and put us back in drought conditions. Every drop helps (to a point)...

Had to. Had a lawn full of lawn treatments that require to be watered-in. It was timed for the big rain that never happened, so yes I was watering last night. Sprinkler system still busted from the freeze (thank you Jack Frost) so I had to do the old fashioned way with a hose and sprinkler chess.
