Rain Kisses

We had rain this week, and it was lovely. Texas keeps growing. It seems as if everyone wants to move here.

Most metropolitan areas in the state have mandated conversion to surface water because decades of pumping water from below the surface have caused serious subsidence issues in many areas.

Surface water is more expensive than well water. It's not uncommon in San Antonio and other municipalities for a summer water bill to be a few hundred dollars.

Of course, surface water means reservoirs and rivers must be replenished by rain. Therein lies the problem. The consumption keeps increasing, but the source keeps depleting.

So we've reached the point where rain--in moderation--is a reason to be delighted.

I love what Langston Hughes wrote: "Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby."

Takeaway Truth

Whatever your weather, enjoy it and the day before you.
