Almost gone

The cool front came in Sunday morning and I think we have a pretty good chance of rain soon. That would be great because my poor tank is almost dry. We did have catfish in there but I haven't seen any in a long while. The big cranes are able to walk all the way across now and they come daily to eat the fish. We need about 3 or 4 inches of hard rain to put some water back in the tank.
Since the cool air came, my mood is much better and I apologize to those coping with ice. Also, I know that there are places in the world without any water. Things are back in perspective for me, I hope. The house is closed up again and my first priority is getting rid of the flies! White chicken chili for supper.

I hope you get water soon. That must be very difficult.

I love to watch cranes. It's scary to think if you don't get rain soon they'll lose that food source.

I can truly relate !I don't do well at all in too much heat,and get cranky. When the cool weather comes, even if it is inconvenient, why I just perk up and have so much more energy.

Our pond level gets quite low most August / Septembers and the Great Blue Herons just walk across it eating the frogs, tadpoles and goldfish. Usually the November rains fill it up and the water level remains high again til next August.
