My neighbor claims we have had over 8". I think he may be stretching it just a little. I went yesterday and burned a lot of brush. I have been waiting a long time to scratch that task off the list.

A few good bucks on camera, over all a great trip. Got 95% of my stuff done. I expected things to be as dry as a popcorn fart however mostly things were green.

















1st of 2018. Shot 10, recovered 8, 28 empties in my bag lol

I live 3 miles east of town. We have not gotten much more than a misty slop here so far.

I10 E/W was flooded over at mm392 west of town. 277 N of town was flooded over. The dry devils river bed in town was a raging river flooding many businesses and homes. Very uneasy feeling for our lease as a finger of the river runs through our lease. The lease got about 1Ē per FarmLogs.

It was bad in town! A few of the old timers here have said they have never seen the draws with that much water in them. Lots of flooded houses and businesses. Prayers up for everyone who is dealing with the bad parts of this.

There is more rain forecast for mid week! We canít handle any more. The ground is totally saturated, and just about every drop goes into the draws, which means more flooding!!!!!

We need a bit of a drying out!!!!!

No doubt the pics Iíve seen do no justice. Have seen a few videos as well that are gut wrenching after what we went through here in SE Texas with Harvey last year. Praying for all those impacted by this. Agree on the drying out.

This rain event was quite unique. Iím 30 miles south of town and our lease got .2Ē while you guys further north around town got anywhere from 7-13Ē. In fact my dad was at our place yesterday and said it was mainly dry except for a few low spots that still had some moisture. Crazy weather...

Congrats to the hunter. We got busted everywhere we went to tonight on the way in. My daughter had a dog come up from behind as a target buck came in from the front. Dog barked, deer ran, game over. Neighbor is not going to like his morning.
