Re: Re: Bad weather in Texas

Pam, I do hope you get your 30-40 inches of rain, but not all at one time! What's the forecast? Any rain in sight?
Noreen, sorry to hear about your flooding and storm.  How does it look today, water down? Any damage?

what's even funnier is I wish we'd had the 10 inches and you had 2.  We can
absorb it easily and you can't.   Lavon's little better than a mudhole,
Tawakoni isn't much better.  Cedar Creek is low but not terrible because of
the storms that skitter east of here and don't get to this side of the lake.
We need about 30 - 40 inches to start getting caught up.
