don't anyone complain how dry it is

Unless you live in an area that looks like this.  The watering holes or ponds were getting pretty low in Oklahoma.

Low pond

You can see where the water level in this photo was at one time.

Cattle to drink

This is a skinny cow and I don't mean the kind you buy in the freezer section of the grocery store.  I took this photo while driving along the highway in Texas.  Most of the cattle and horses here were pretty skinny.

Crossing this river was pretty shocking and I missed a shot of a big river like this that was pretty much bone dry.

Brown land

One of our daughters commented along the way how the corn looked.  She thought that they were "way" ahead of us...We told her no...they were in a drought.

Her response was...WOW!

This photo is a drive by shot while it was raining on our way back home from Texas, finally some rain and a double rainbow.

Double rainbow

I'm sure the rain is much appreciated, but I think the damage is already done.
