Wintry weather near you
Rain! Glorious Rain in Dallas!
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
Texas has been experiencing a drought, and we have gotten some rain over the last few months, but not nearly enough to fill the lakes and overcome the drought! Well, today was such a wonderful day! It rained all day. The pictures you see are of the Trinity River, which is normally a low water river, and doesn't usually move very fast.
The place where I took these pictures is usually about 20-30 feet above the water level of the river. The river was flooding and spreading over its bounds today.
Even though the river is very muddy, the sight of water running was a glorious sight! The location is on Sandy Lake Road, in Coppell, Texas.
The last two pictures show soccer fields that are flooded, and the local birds enjoying the wonderful sight of water!
