    Let's hope the weather pattern changes soon. I lived in Houston in the 1970s and I know what an afternoon thunder storm can do to the city, let alone weeks of colossal storms can do!
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    I live a few hours south-west of Austin.  Not much flooding here.  We're grateful for the relief from the scorching drought.  But 65+mph winds Thursday night left me with a very large tree down in my back yard.

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    Several people still missing in the hill country, and finding more bodies each day.  I'm afraid that when it is all over there will be someone that will never be found, which has happened before after heavy flood events.  One of the lakes west of San Antonio that was almost completely dry at 4% of normal capacity before the storms started was at 52% on Thursday.  More thunderstorms yesterday will cause it to rise some more, and storms are possible late today and tomorrow.  Thanks for your consideration.  Maybe one little prayer will result in preventing more loss of life.
    Have a great weekend all,

    We got about 14" at my house and I still have standing water in my yard and we're on a hill! It's a gentle slope and its taking time for the water to work its way down.

    More thunderstorms right now in the hill country, almost an 1-1/2" of rain at my house in New Braunfels, and it's all headed east toward Houston very slowly.  The Trinity River in Dallas is out of its banks and more rain is on the way.  All that water flows south to the Gulf, and a lot of communities south of Interstate 10 will begin to flood from runoff causing the rivers and creeks to overflow.
