The rain has been most welcome. We love it. The grass, trees, shrubs, and gardens love it. The deer love it, too.
Seemingly out of nowhere a tropical storm formed in the Gulf of Mexico late Sunday. It is named Hermine and is passing just to the west of Austin. Hermine has brought a bunch of steady rain to Austin today and more to come tomorrow. Julie is headed off today for a meeting on campus and to do some exploring, so the rain is not what we would have ordered for today, but we’ll take it any way we can get it.
