Rain comes to Central Texas

Finally! It is 75 degrees and I can go outside again.

We have had a week of rain here in Austin and it has cooled things off. So much so that my peas have sprouted.

The most important thing though, is that my tank is full! It is even overflowing. I went outside today and had to dig my trench to slow the water from running into the neighbor's yard. I plan on filling it with mulch to soak up and hold the moisture for the grapes that will be planted and terraced on the berm. I got soaking wet because it was too hot to don rain gear. The funny thing is that I would have gotten just as waterlogged had I been working in the hot sun. I think I prefer rainwater to sweat.
