Dolly sends waves of lovely rain.....

Heavy rain came by in waves all afternoon! The gutters were flooded for brief periods and at one point the windshield wipers could not keep up with the deluge. Lucky this only lasted for a few minutes!

With perfect timing I went for a short walk/run and then swim early this morning before the rain really started. A light shower did catch me a few minutes from the car. Just nice.

Learning how the weather works in Texas is fun. Even though central Austin is in drought this year (about 50% of normal) it's so different from dry California. Often a thunder storm will blow up in the afternoon, it rains for a few minutes (and maybe just in a very localized area), then the sun comes out drying everything in short order. Very fun.

Maybe I will look for a book about Texas weather.

Happy Trails.........
