Stormy Weekends

I love thunderstorms, I really do. When I was a kid, my best friend and I would spend time in rocking chairs, blankets draped over our laps, sitting in front of the sliding glass door to the backyard just watching the storms go past. I still love them, but living in San Antonio has some drawbacks. The soil here is extremely rocky and the area doesn't get much rain. It seems that when it does rain here, it comes down in buckets and the ground can't absorb it all. Aside from being very expensive to put in an in-ground pool (due to the blasting required), the rocky soil contributes to our flooding problems.

The storms woke my daughter around 4 this morning and she spent the rest of the night with us. Interestingly enough, Bro Bro monkey didn't wake up early. We didn't venture out today so I'm not sure what the roads are like, but the news was consistently interrupting the day's television programming for storm related updates. We were planning on going to the Alamodome tomorrow, but I think we're going to play that by ear now. I heard it was going to rain some more, so I may find myself entertained by just watching some more storms pass. I hope everyone's enjoying their weather wherever that may be.
