ACL 2011: Sweet Wet Rain

I must apologize for the lack of photos from the second day at Austin City Limits Festival. But I have a good reason: rain. Much needed rain. According to the Lower Colorado River Authority, Austin is currently in the worst drought since 1895. The city is shades of yellow and orange. Further north in the state more than 1,500 homes have been lost to the wildfires. The fire is now declared contained.

Seems like the governor should be kicking himself for the cuts made to the volunteer firefighting budget. But instead, he tells the people of Texas to pray for rain.

Thankfully the dry city got a cool taste of rain yesterday. It was the first measurable rain in months.
