It’s Dry Out There!

Most of ya’ll know I live in Austin, TX. Austin is pretty much directly in the middle of the state.

What you may not know is that we’re in the middle of a deep drought. I’ve never seen it this bad, and I remember the drought in the Dallas area in 1998. It was so hot that year my parking pass melted in my car!

I’ve been trying to capture some photos of what it’s like this summer. The set above was taken around Spicewood Springs and TX360, near Bull Creek. I was actually able to stand out in what’s normal a flowing creek to take some of these photos. It’s amazing.

What an amazing country. Parts of the country are deep in floods, and we’re starving for rain. According to the weather report today there’s a 30% chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

Just wanted to share. It’s been a odd summer so far!
