    Default how's the rest of the Republic..

    ..of Texas fairing with this rain? its been slow and steady the last several days around Houston with around 2 inches in general, 4-5" an hour or so north of here. not a lot of runoff since its so slow and the ground so parched - just enough to refill some ponds, but most likely soaking in and recharging the aquifers - still good of course. hope Austin has done well, they were ground zero for "extraordinary drought conditions" .....

    too bad its too late for Waterloo to have a SR test......

    We recieved 2 inches of snow up here by Ft Collins colorado last week and that has been about it for about 2 months! You could share some of that rain with us. It is sunny and 60 here today...

    It has rained and rained and rained here in NE Texas, and it wasn't dry when it started.

    I'm loving it personally. Ponds and creeks that were bone dry now are completely full and over flowing. Just wish I would have seeded my property before it started.....

    Not quite as much as you here in San Antonio but we'll take what we can get.
    Hope is hearing the melody of the future. Faith is dancing to it!

    We got over 5 inches total in the DFW area. It was a much needed slow soaking rain.

    Finialy got some down here. Couple of inches the last few days. First measurable amount since August. However, Lake Amistad is full, BassMaster Elite in progress, life is good.
