So the "post-rain" pics proved popular over at Lubbock Daily Photo (sorry, I could only keep up the alliteration for so long), so here are a few more, for your viewing enjoyment:
Those weird spinning things.
Some trees, near the said spinning things.
Tire swing in the playground (think how fun it would be to swing above the water! Never mind getting dirty!).
There was a "dry" entrance to the connected equipment, and people were on it (including Chad, apparently)-- and I would have joined them if not for the fact that I was wearing scrubs.
I know this is really gross, but I was extremely curious as to what was going on down there! I haven't been back to investigate yet.
