Contrary to popular belief, Texas has many natural lakes. The problem is that many of the lakes are so small (alright, dinky) or temporary that few would consider them real lakes.

What we haven’t had lately is rain. That problem has been corrected with the beginning of the spring rains and storms. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has officially received over 5 inches of rain in the past two days. Water is everywhere…even if only for a little while.

It's raining!

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.

  1. I remember driving in rain last spring thinking it seemed so strange! It had been years! We are grateful to have overflowing lakes in north Texas!

    • Amen! After so many years of low lake levels, it’s wonderful to be able to release some of the water of the lakes to downstream. The trees and grass and wildflowers are all as grateful, I’m sure!
