Storm of January 4th 2008

Wow! What a storm this was. Rain started at 12:30 am this morning and didn't stop until 3:30 pm this afternoon. It just POURED! And the wind was the worst I have ever seen up here in Brownsville. We had sustained winds of 30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph (although it felt worse than that). It sure was a good beginning to refill all of our low resevoirs up here. The rain stopped right around sunset and the light was absolutely beautiful I HAD to take pictures. Bradley, our cat, looked at the total mess of our outside furniture that the wind left behind.

The wind was still blowing a little as I took a picture of the tree relected in a puddle of water. The sunset made for a warm light for all these pictures.

This picture was taken directly toward the sunset which made the rest of the picture so dark.

This is the same picture manipulated in picasa2 using more fill light in the photo. What a difference in picutures, huh!!?!!

They so oversold the storm on the news down here. It was cold and windy, but we just got a normal amount of rain.

Keep an eye on those branches, Bradley!
