Wet summer in Texas.

Most of Texas is flooding, and forecasters say the above-average rainfall will likely continue through summer of 2015, and maybe even fall and winter 2015/2016.The wet weather is largely the result of a global climate phenomenon called El Niño, which alters global air currents and circulation making some regions drier and some wetter. Texas has already felt the effects.

“In many places we’ve had never expected so large amounts of rain,” said state climatologist John Nielsen-Gammon on Friday, before floods swamped Houston on Monday night. “It appears that Texas will easily break its record for single-month rainfall.”

Here is my brief story:

After all day long drive from El Paso east by I-10 and later I-20 and I-30 C I finally ended for a night rest at budget Hotel close to freeway I-30 with a good overlook of downtown lights of Fort Worth city which happened to be my destination. A fast decision where to stop in Fort Worth for the next few years came to me easily after a continental breakfast. Hotel staff member advised to go east, then turn south on Hulen St and look for no S6000. He added that I could find there Rental office. Few hours later we got an apartment where we were to live for the next couple of years. The last leg of the travel through California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas from Chatsworth, Ca (+/-1500 ml) was maybe too long for of a simple adventure like: go to Texas. One should know that there is about 600 ml distance from El Paso to Fort Worth. When driving E-10 along the mountains range, where the State border divides Texas from New Mexico, we could see beautifully situated Carlsbad Caverns. Seeing it in the morning light of rising sun, brought back some memories. I have been there 8 years before, as a Soaring Advisor for the Polish Team. There were World Soaring Championships, Hobs, NM, 1984. (the story link will be given later). Now I have to drive to satisfy my endless quest for the job. Lockheed Martin Co, Fort Worth, Texas, is my goal. And destination. New contract work for Lockheed found by CC Weekly. My living stop in Texas has been counting from December 11, 2002.
