Dave,

When you get around to adding more, could you please add a 'rain dance'?

I'm sure you and your TX members would love one! Thumbs up Big Grin Lovey dubby Whistling

What we need is balance. Everyone in the country is either flooding or in drought. If we could send only the EXCESS water ifrom New England to Texas...

I'd take every drop, gladly.

Here are a few pictures of our drought-struck farm, if you're interested:

Watched the news about the wildfires near Austin, TX today. Not good.

When I lived in northern California during the 70's-80's we had a 6 yr drought. Lake Shasta was a mud hole. I think Lake Tahoe water line was down 6 ft and the Truckee stopped running.

I hope you all that badly need the rain get it and SOON!

The wildfires are back with a vengeance now. Scary...I thought things might start clearing up today, but instead there's more fires. The skies are hazy with smoke.

Works for me, but the rain clouds need to get on the bandwagon too Whistling
Each cloud has a silver lineing if only you look for it.

Yes, we need a rain cloud thingy, then. I think I saw a neat rain cloud thingy on another forum somewhere.
Seriously, there's already thousands of people homeless from wildfires in Texas! We need rain bad...to put the fires out & keep them out!
