It has been a strange week for weather in San Antonio. A tropical system brought in moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, gale force winds knocked down trees and power lines throughout the city. We even ended up with one of our patio chairs in the pool.
Other parts of the city received nickel size hail. Juan told me his landscaping took a terrible beating with many plants losing their blooms. Many parts of the city lost power for several hours. Yesterday we hit 100° for the first time this year. However, it will not be the last.
Mother nature has not been kind to folks from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri this year. These states are dealing with flooding, tornado damage, etc. How has this spring’s weather affected you?
The primary beneficiaries of this weather pattern are the plants in our landscaping. We have not yet turned on our sprinkler system. However, our plants are flourishing.
Fortunately, most of us can stay inside when violent weather strikes. As I was watching the downpour fill my pool this Bob Dylan song came to mind. Enjoy!
I’m glad the chair in the pool was the worst of things, for you Brad! That wind was pretty scary, but we had do damage. I feel so sad for the ones who lost power, in this heat!
Although I don’t reply often, I do enjoy your post comments and music selections. We ran our irrigation system this weekend for only the second time this spring. But it is heating up in St. Louis too, so the irrigation system will get more use. I enjoyed the panoramic view of you in your back yard-very lovely.
