My new favorite bird is the Roadrunner. We actually have roadrunners here, living right around us. I looked them up in my bird book and guess what they eat? Snakes. Well, they are at the top of my list, that is for sure! I was watching one today and they are fascinating to watch, as they stalk their prey and catch it. I will keep trying to get a better picture, of the roadrunner, to post on here. Behind the roadrunner is the damage that 6-8 inches of rain in 3 hours did to our rock driveway the other night.
Well, we have had more rain here in North Texas. In a town just north of here, Gainesville, 300 homes were either lost or damaged by flood waters. Other than the gulley in our driveway, we had no other damage, except that our beautiful pool looked like pea soup and had lots of branches and leaves in it. But, we perservered and conquered. We have, once again, a beautiful pool. Of course, more rain is in the forecast. I am grateful, though, that we didn't receive more damage.
