As is common for us, we have been struggling with little or no rain for most of the summer - just .1 inch here or there.  There has been rain around the Houston area from time to time but little has hit the ground here.  After clouds passing over head time and time again with no precipitation at all, we got hit tonight with RAIN!

We got over 2.5 inches of rain in an hour along with howling winds, clashing thunder and lots of lightening crashing around us.

The dog was terrified by all the thunder and lightening and one of the cats demanded to come inside too.

Everything got a good drenching and other than a couple frightened animals, all is well.
