I don't have a rain Guage.

.4 inches in Bulverde. I was certain what I saw on radar in Boerne would reach us. It broke up significantly between here and there.

0.75” around Calf Creek, TX (just west of Brady). Brady got around 3+ “. The big storms built just easy of us but I’ll take whatever at this point. Hoping to get another inch by the end of the weekend.

My rain gauge was partially full from me watering the yard earlier in the week, so I don’t know what the total rainfall was. But, we had a decent shower yesterday evening. And another slow shower this morning.

Got almost 2 1/4 today, so far, here in Sonora! That makes almost 3 1/2 total in the last 3 days.



The water level in this small pond behind my house is usually a foot or more below the top of the rock wall. Its running over the top right now!!!
