past two days it has been raining in Midland and it will continue to rain this week. It's very rare to get rain out here in the desert so it's nice! However, the flooded roads are not so nice.

Midland is NOT a desert!

It's not even an ARID climate...it's SEMI-ARID!

This place is humid! Maybe not like the East coast, but far more humid than the desert!

Yep. Midland is semi-arid--and is a lot more humid than it was 30 years ago when I first moved there. All the development, along with new water-hog golf courses and Lake Amistad Reservoir (even though it's about 225 miles south) all play a part in making Midland a lot more humid than it once was.

Midland is a place of extremes, too. You're either burning up dry--or flooding!
