Front yard DMZ

De Moisturized Zone - cannot waste water on keeping too much area greened - simply keeping a little lawn alive so when the rains come (and they will) grass will have some life left.

Rain will come - always does - right now it seems more our country needs this kind of rain even more than the moisture kind


- but we serve a God great enough for both - THE reason it is always good on Buhlaland! Bless y'all


Rainstorm in Texas - this clip lasts a full hour - listen to as much as you need to recall the refreshing feelings of rain. Good reasons scripture describes the blessings of God coming as rain - sustaining and refreshing.

Wonderful videos! The rain sounds so refreshing, and even though we've had more rain than you have it's still dry, so it's nice to close your eyes and listen and imagine it raining for a few days and settling the dust around here!

BEAUTIFUL....what a refreshing sound but I didn't have an hour to listen to it I may try later. I love the sound of rain...Maybe because I was born in Washington? Here in MN we have been having more storms than usual which keeps the mosquito population in full force:)

Well I admit to clicking on to the rain and listening to what rain in Texas sounds like, but I turned it off quick as a wink after a fleeting thought of "ahh that is such a lovely sound". You see we still have hay to get in and after the rain debaucle of early July, I don't want to risk calling the rain in like you call a puppuppuppy. But I hope you get yours soon 'fore you grass gasps its last.

Loved both of these, Linda. I love Hillsong - they're wonderful.

I could sit and listen to that rain all evening. Would you do one that's about 8 hrs so I can sleep through it at night???

Now, whoever thought of making a Texas thunderstorm recording? At this point, yes, I would welcome a good storm. I'm also keeping spots in my grass alive. I have the soaker hoses in my flower beds which helps the bushes and flowers. Hope the goats are holding on. Hang in there, Linda, the rains will come. :)

Clever person who recorded that Texas rainstorm - sounds vaguely familiar though it has been far too long since we've had one!
Thanks all - yes the rains will come - feeling sympathy for the ranchers selling off herds due to no hay OR water. We sold 9 goats last week and it will stretch a round bale about twice as long -
No mosquitoes is the only good thing about this drought

Hi Linda Sue, I enjoyed both videos. Maybe because we are just a short distance from the lake, but we usually get a shower every evening about supper. I enjoy sitting with the pets and looking out and listening to the rain.

Keeping you both in my prayers. Hope you have a restful evening.

AHHHHhhhhh... The rain is intoxicating! I wish we could hear those raindrop sounds here that in my state park before it dries up and blows away. :-) It's hard living in a tree by a lake that's almost gone. bleh...
