... actually, this title could go for almost all of South Texas. I have only been in Corpus now for about 2 months. Is this about the driest its ever been here? Everything looks so dried up and dying. The palm trees around here are actually turning yellow! Does Corpus Christi go through long periods without rain like this normally? From what I can tell, we are about 7 inches behind normal right now!

Actually, I think it's been worse than this before. During the summer time is when we get hit with our late night storms, so hopefully we get something...and QUICK!

This is one of the "crispiest" winter/spring seasons I can remember. It's getting downright physically irritating....I want to shake my fist at the sky! But it would just mock me by continuing to get overcast every day, with not a drop of rain....<<<sigh>>>


Spring can be so beautiful down here when we get good rainfall.

CC went through a really bad drought about 10-12 years ago. It was so bad that there were 6-8 inch wide cracks in the ground in some places!

Help may be on the way. We are headed to Corpus for a 4 day weekend this Friday .... rain follows us wherever we go. I can't even remember the last time we went to Corpus and did not have some rain while we were there.

Default It is all of Central Texas

It is all of Central Texas, we drove from Austin to Rockport & Corpus in April and saw almost no wildflowers. The same trip in previous years had lots of flowers. Things did get greener and we saw more flowers near the coast then we did the rest of the trip.

There's a 50% chance of thunderstorms on Sunday. Bring 'em on, Kibby!

Oh great, the one day we had to mow this weekend. I won't complain though -- I'll gladly take the much needed rain.

How did everyone like the rain on Saturday evening? As I said - it always rains when we are in town.
