    Eddie, the noon news said East of Greenville will see 4-5" through Wednesday, with possible low area flooding, soooo, might want to put the ducks in the house so they don't go down river!

    Light showers South of me, sky is darker and it's starting to kick off..Wonder if it will be south to San Antonio, SIL says is "bleak dry" there right now.

    Yep, the NWS radar shows it's getting close to me. I just finished doing a little trimming and edging the lawn; mowed with the ZTR yesteday evening. It's quite an experience when you're half blind in one eye. Espcially with a wife fussing that you shouldn't be doing it, and old safety glasses that are not too clear anymore. But I'm ready for all the rain we can get.

    I'm about 15 minutes from the Island (Laguna Vista). We try to eat at a different spot everytime we go, which is not as often as one might think living so close. Somehow we just keep going to the same places. Dirty Al's and affiliates.

    It's here! Lots of thunder and lightning, raining sideways, after 30 minutes gutters are overflowing and water 3" deep running thru the yard to the neighbor's pond. Of course I have the trailer still loaded with shavings so it looks like I might get a little wet unloading it.

    Hugo is about 70 miles east of me and they have been getting more rain than we have. Nothing here yet ... but the weather guy says it's coming.

    It has been raining for most of the past 5 hours, at times pretty heavy. Heck of a lightning and thunder show. Now they say we all may get 2-4", even East Texas. We'll see by tomorrow evening.

    No rain yet. Wind gusting to 20mph from the South. My guess is the rain is going to slide right by us. Weather map shows it could be nasty around Austin, Ft Hood and Waco.

    It has been raining hard in Lee County for the last two hours. By the sounds on the metal roof I'd say 2".

    It started raining in the Denton area around 5 p.m. and apparently rained a light rain all night, and is still raining. The NWS shows Denton has already gotten about two and a half inches and the radar doesn't make it look like it's going to quit anytime soon.

    Oh my! If I only had my ponds completed. This would be an awesome pond filler. As it is, the 2.75" so far is just runoff into my existing full ponds and full lake. We won't keep much of this because all our "tubs" are full. I'm about 5 full day's work from finishing my pond excavation enough to raise the dam. Oh well, ths will make my clay damp and easy to work once I get the final excavation complete. It just breaks my heart to see precious water flowing away.
