Truth be told...I haven't had a bite of BBQ since I moved back. Just don't feel right.

Look at a radar map and see for yourself. ;) Push a pin halfway between China Spring and Cayote. Big rain DFW. Big rain Temple to the southwest. Narrow band that has already passed here.

Should've left your car windows open last night like I did. That really brought the rain.

Now I gotta go mop up the inside of the car...

According to our local weather idiot last week , we are already in the second worst situation since the drought began. This is getting really old.
