The immediate effects of the rainy weather are always that we get wet and our daily lives are hampered a bit, then there's always the fact that the grass gets so long and we can't mow...and that's good, because it means that the grass in pastures is growing to provide feed for our livestock and wildlife. It also means that the growing grass and plants are going to create a mat that will help stop soil erosion, and it will mean good seed heads produced which will make more grass next year, and the list goes on.
But even all of the above are almost secondary these days to the need for water storage in our drouthy state. Most of our lakes and underground aquifers have been suffering from low levels for some years now, and they need all the rain they can get.

Wednesday, 20 May 2015
4.41'' of rain has fallen in Lampasas so far in May. That's 1.95'' above normal for this 20th day of the month. Looking back at the records though, we had the same situation last year. When May of 2014 was over, we had totaled 8.17'' of rain, almost 4'' above the norm.  
It wasn't always like this in May, the month where the flowers and grass heads flower and begin to mature. In May of 2013 we had just 3.12'' of rain, over an inch short of normal, and in May of 2012, there was just 2.43'', a deficit of 1.77''.
