Exclamation Rain!!

Y'all seeing this forecast for Texas the next 4 or 5 days? Saying Houston area is supposed to pick up 4 to 5 inches ... and a big area of Texas is supposed to be under flash flooding. Definitely not good for some as rivers are already on the rise from previous storms...

I’ve been watching that. Lake Somerville is already almost 13 ft high and will certainly rise if we get the rain that they are predicting. The COE can’t open the gates at this point due to the Brazos. Looks like some crazy stuff is headed our way

Looks like people might get flooded once again along the lower Brazos. This would be the 3rd or 4th time in 3 years! Crazy!

I wish it would just rain on my hunting grounds but leave my working grounds alone. This rain is a killer for construction.

Put up a new rain gauge this morning.
May have to empty it a few times to keep up with the rain.

I understand we are getting lots of rain and I hope and pray that more people are not getting flooded but wasnít long ago we were all crying about not having any rain. Gods plan is not our plan. Best to take it to him in prayer. Just my thoughts.

In the 18 years we've lived in our house I do not remember the ground being this saturated for this long. I went ahead and mowed yesterday since more rain is coming tomorrow but like Buckshot I got the mower stuck twice. Gonna have to go back in and fill ruts if it ever dries out. At least all the landscape plants are looking great....

Just got an alert on my phone that 3 to 5 inches has fallen in Porter the last couple hours. The next 3 days could produce a lot of heavy rain for some folks.

Thats crazy. These storms are moving so slow. My house near Huntsville just got smacked pretty good, but not as bad as Porter. And theres another cell about to hit SW Houston within the next hour or so. Going to be fun trying to get home from Katy area

Yep it has been crazy here at the office. There are water rescues going on in kingwood right now. I bet we've had at least 5 inches in the last couple of hours. Our server has been down for a while so we are just watching it flood.

We’re looking at some seriously nasty storms up in the panhandle. Weatherman are expecting high probability of nasty tornadoes. Saying they haven’t seen conditions like this ever that are perfect for serious weather.

Schools let out early, canceled activities, business closing, and people taking shelter. Can’t say I’ve ever seen that out this way before. Let’s hope it’s not as bad as they predict.

I dumped 2.2" out of my gauge three weeks ago, 4.5" two weeks ago, 4.3" last week and another .3" this past weekend. My french drain hasn't stopped flowing out to the street in three weeks.
