Here are a couple of pics I took in my back yard this evening.

I saw the same rainbow from my house! I thought I was going crazy -- I kept hearing a "truck starting up" before I realized it was thunder, lol. I checked the local radar at kristv.com and it showed a small-ish thunderstorm that was moving from Odem. It was definitely a nice little surprise.

According to the local radar at: AccuWeather.com - Weather Radar - Local, State, Regional & National (http://www.accuweather.com/radar-local.asp?partner=accuweather&traveler=1&site=KCRP &type=R1&anim=1&large=1 - broken link) We might get sprinkled on again today. I will have a camera ready because it's been so long since I've seen real rain I've forgotten what it looks like.

gabetx,

Judging from your photos, I suspect we used to be neighbors. I used to live in the neighborhood defined by the intersection of Leopard St, and Violet Rd, with Rockwood St as a main bypass, just a bit north of the Tuloso-Midway high school.[SIZE=4][/SIZE]

We just got a sprinkle here. I watched the storm come through on the radar,,, quickly got dressed and ran around the yard with the fertilizer spreader just knowing we were finally gonna get a decent rain. Guess what??? Just got enough to dampen the sidewalks.

I'm back to watering the lawn again. Oh, heckydarn~! (I know this is read by mixed company or I'd use a stronger word)

I live right on the other side of Oil Belt in between Woodland and Wandering Creeks. I live in the Woodland Estates. So you were about a half mile away.

We have been getting some good rain here. Its supposed to rain even more tomorrow. I love this weather! Only thing I'd wish is that we would get a nice thunderstorm overnight. There isn't anything better than falling asleep to the ambient sounds of softly rolling thunder.
