    Calling All Texans

    Just watching the disastrous flooding in Texas on the news here and thinking of our Texan members hoping you are fairing well. Looks real bad.

    Thankfully we are not in a low lying area. Missed us mostly today, but still got a 1/4". It was all south of here. It's amazing now from what I understand all of the lake levels are now at 100% plus. I know many folks sure have it really bad...

    I had some serious wind with the storms that blew through, around midnight. Several 10-12 inch diameter limbs down, but it looks like I missed the worst of it, yet again. Critters and myself are safe, and that is the main thing. Being on a hill with the house and barn is great when it comes to flooding rains, but is in the line of whatever winds Mother Nature wants to throw out.

    And, I rarely do much more than sit and watch even the bad stuff, from my living room windows, but I was pacing the floors of the hallway, last night, wondering when the roof was going to lift off, or I would see someone else's roof fly by. I've been through worse, but not in a long time.

    My rain gauge was blown across the yard. It still had 2 inches of rain in it, so not sure how much I really received. It is likely about that much though, judging from what I poured out of buckets and troughs, this morning.

    I did get airborne in my plane yesterday, for a little while and the areas of flooding are just amazing. It is as bad as you see on the news, maybe even worse.

    Texkev; Last I checked yesterday evening, Lake Travis (Austin) was only up to 52% capacity, and that is after it rose 7 feet in less than a day. Some of west Texas still has lower levels too.

    Sounds bad. I remember the Martinsville flood of '08. The entire downtown was so water damaged that it had to be replaced. The only store that survived was the rural king. Hope everyone is OK !!

    Next round of wind and storms just arrived! Time to batten down the hatches again!
