After the Rains

What a wild ride the Texas weather has given us recently. Less than two weeks ago, we had snow:

Okay, so it wasn’t a lot of snow – but it was snow. Temps were in the 20s – darn cold for March here.

Then we had over a week of quasi-summer: temps in the high 70s, got up to 80 a couple of times. Beautiful.

Then yesterday, the rains came. I was getting ready to build an ark (already have a start with two cats). It rained and rained and rained … not just steady but hard rain, all day long.

Today, it’s pretty and sunny again, but cool (50s). And the lake is the highest it’s been since we moved here. The docks look as if they’re floating on the water; their support legs are completely covered:

A far cry from summer before last, when we had beaches that extended out beyond the docks.

Oh, and the swallows have returned. We have a lone one living under our balcony now. I hope he/she finds a mate. I’ve grown very accustomed to sharing in the nesting, laying, hatching, feeding and fledging processes.
