|Current Watches, Warnings and Advisories for Hopkins (TXC223) Texas Issued by the National Weather Service|
It's been a great week in Reilly Springs. Sunday’s Memorial Day Service was a wonderful affair and we must thank all of those who were involved in the planning of the day, for a great time of visiting and remembering those who have founded our community.
The Reilly Springs community has received an ample amount of rainfall in the past week. But what do you want to bet that by about the end of June or the first of Jul, we’ll be wishing we had some more of it? It just seems that we’re never really happy with the weather. We all need to say a prayer of thanksgiving for the abundance of moisture that we’re entering the summer with, as a month or so ago, it looked like we might have a very, very dry season on our hands.
Rain, rain, and more rain that's about the word for Reilly Springs this week. But we're not complaining. We needed the rain and it puts us ahead of the game for the summer months. Reports are that we received approximately 8 inches of rainfall in the community, in the past week. The stock ponds, lakes, and creeks are full, but many still can't get the drought of two years ago out of their minds and feel that too much rain is still better than none at all.
