South Texas Weather

Has anyone noticed South Texas is getting large quantities of rain? Despite the number of dead, injured and property lost … and we feel for those who lost loved ones … we needed the rain, badly.

I think we’ve received about a foot of rain in the last three weeks. To let you know how bad it was with our drought over the past two years, all the rain  has finally gotten us to Stage I water restrictions. That’s right, we are still under water restrictions because we were nearing historic lows. Did I say two years? It’s really five but there’s a lot of climate change deniers here. It doesn’t fit their political and religious beliefs. Otherwise, we couldn’t keep giving away our water to corporate interests and saying how great the economy is here. The water company is looking at desalinization as a long-term answer. One of our weather people got in trouble for saying we need a Katrina-sized storm to sit here to break us out of the drought. In fact, we have Medina Lake near San Antonio. Last month, it was at 4% full, now, it is approaching 50%.

Anyway, it’s been raining like crazy here, even right now. We still need the rain, because we don’t know when we’ll get more.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
