More Rain? Enough Already.

Torrential rain and thunder outside right now. Flash Flood Warning in effect until 8:15 pm. Lord, we've had enough rain here for awhile.

True. We're loving it here in Austin though. Lake Travis is up 23 feet last time I checked, highest level in years. Looking forward to camping out there in my Escape!

Yeah, it's crazy. Haven't seen this much rain over an extended period of time since I came to South Texas in the early 90's. The good news is that the Edwards Aquifer District says the drought is over.

The weather channel keeps showing the Florida Panhandle in the rainy area, but at our house we've only had 1 1/2" in the last month - we're drying up and blowing away! Last year at this time was about when we had 26" in one 24 hour period - quite a difference a year makes.

Oh how I wish you could send us some. I just drove from LA to Sacramento, and except for the farming it is already super dry. We are going to be in dire straits if we don't get sufficient rain this year.
