    At least we can always afford to eat rice and fried Rats. Rice is cheap and there always seems to be plenty of Rats around. All your protein and carbos in one square meal.

    Yep, very little rain here in Texas for the last 3-4 months, which are usually the rainiest season of the year. It is bad when you ahve to run awn sprinklers in March. But it was the same last year too - very dry winter,but we got more rain than usual in the summer though.
