Thoughts: I was happy to see some good rainfall today, even though it was pretty brief. I really enjoy brief heavy thunderstorms. I think Houston, TX's rainfall everyday, may be sadly coming to a soon end. It was fun while it lasted. We'll see what happens. I would rather it rain everyday, than it be really hot, during the summer.
