In The Midst Of A Drought, Even A Violent Storm Seems Like A Relief

Here is the metaphor I thought of a few hours ago when some strong storms brought some rain to Houston for the first time in months—

“When you are long-suffering from the drought of decency being inflicted by Texas Republican voters and by elected Republicans in Texas in the current legislative session, even a storm with thunder, lightning, hail, and high winds seems like a relief.”

Above is a picture I took of the clouds as the storms approached in the middle of the afternoon. I don’t have a picture from when it was very gusty and raining heavily.

Though since this post is predicated on metaphor, I think the dark clouds in the picture suggest enough to let your imagination do the rest of the work.

I have confidence in you.

  1. Keep those prayers for rain, coming, Texans!

    Thank God our governor signed that proclamation a few weeks back. Very well might have saved my lawn…

  2. It did not turn out to be nearly enough rain. The drought goes on.
