Signs It Hasn't Rained Enough Lately
Last Sunday, at least at my house, we got quite a bit of a downpour overnight. I was quite excited, almost as excited as I was the late summer evening in 1993 when it finally rained after 65 days.
The next morning I surveyed the effects of the rain. I was thrilled to see puddles on the tarp I'd put down to solarize the soil for my next project. Given the heat and drought, my grass is already quite dead without help from the tarp, but I thought I would ensure that all the weeds are dead.
As I looked around the tarp, I started to see things. Like this pelican.
And this dog's head.
And this fish. Maybe it's a tarpon?
Maybe I've lost my mind?
