Well, if finally rained in Temple, Texas yesterday! (Wednesday, August 10)
In life, we all dream of moments like these. A long stretch of not seeing something, wishing we could it see it again. Whether it a be a food item taken off a menu, or simply wishing to family after a long stretch.
Sometimes it goes so long we forgot what the item looks like. Which is when it returns, we're awestruck at the fact it appeared again. But what could Texans be so excited about for a return?
Could it be a football team returning to past glory? Is a famous celebrity visiting the state and his hometown? Could an old food establishment once thought to be lost be making a triumphant return?
No, it was something so much better that it made us all run outside to not only see it, but feel it as well.
It was the return of rainfall in Texas! And it wasn't just a sprinkle, showers were in the forecast. And the reactions of some were perfect:
Others just stood in awe:
Just look at it. So majestic in its ways of falling onto the ground. It's so poetic almost too.
While it showed that some places received less than rain than others, it still was a moment that had to be captured in time. But sadly it might be another few days before we see the rain again.
At the time of writing, our partners at KWTX show it will be a little longer once again before rain graces our lawns. Maybe it's time we all learn a rain dance or two?

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple
A while back, I asked the good people of Temple
if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.
This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).
So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.
Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
