So far, so good

Monday morning update: 7.7" total ... and the rain has stopped for now. While that may sound like a fair bit, it fell so slowly and steadily that the ground was able to soak it all up. We even saw a bit of blue sky and the sun setting in the west last night ...


Sadly, the storm continues to pound our neighbors to the east with no end in sight. There will be much work to do.

Sunday morning update: 4.65" of rain yesterday, 1.8" overnight. No wind damage. We'll continue to keep our fingers crossed.

Saturday 
Hurricane Harvey has been kind to our corner of the Hill Country so far: a couple of inches of rain and some natural tree pruning courtesy of 20-30 mph winds ...

Glad that your land and you are safe with little damage. So much more rain will be falling in days ahead - hoping that safety for the masses is managed well.

Thank you all for your thought-full words of hope and presence ... how ironic that the storm that wreaked such havoc has brought cool winds and wildflowers to our land.
