dusty, planking, cowboys football

last week when i was driving back from dallas after getting
my mri i drove twice into an area where there was  a dust storm
with winds and dust that affected the visibility momentarily
can only imagine what a haboob would be like to drive in

wonder if this had anything to do with how dry it is here
some areas in texas have their cotton crop suffering from such
severe dry conditions that are like the dust bowl of the 1930s
maybe well all have to move back to california like they did
in the 1930s

have been collecting rainwater for 8 years now for our drinking
water and this is the first time we have completely ran out of
part of that was my fault as i had some of my tanks unplugged from
my system twice when we got 10 inches of rain and when we got
6 inches of rain so if i had been plugged in i probably would not
be out now
live and learn

we did buy water
its cheaper than gas
and should have enough now until we get rain
have improved my guttering and collection system so hopefully this
wont happen again

am encouraged though that with the worst drought in our history
we probably would not have ran out of water if i had not had
things disconnected

just am glad we are not settlers 100 years ago
as so many ponds (tanks in texas) and streams and rivers have
completely dried up here

can see how whole communities could disappear back then

there are two areas forming off the coast of africa that could be
we have a 10% chance of rain here for the next 2 days
they are just trying to make us feel good

this is a picture of the organicgreen doctor planking on the
entry way to our property

am so ready for football to start
look forward to the cowboy vs broncos tonight
think the starters on both sides may play a little longer
than in past years

maybe well get a look at tebow also for the broncos
play him or trade him please

the cowboys need to produce this year as last
year they sure didnt except in the end
maybe coach garrett has them all lined out to play well
this year
we went to a practice in the alamodome in san antonio
last week and they all looked pretty rusty
the defense blitzed a lot and was breaking through the
offenses line frequently
romo would have been creamed several time in a real game

hopefully they pull it all together

now bring on the real season and bring on college football
am ready
its too hot to do much else anyway
