We lost track but I know it was over 15" for us in Livingston. We got 5.5" in just a few hours one evening.

I have to be close to 18 inches here in Kendall county. Storm Friday night took down my fence and overflowed my rain gauge. We really could use a week of sun around here. I have 3 feeders that are empty and I canít get to them because of the mud and full creeks.

We got 15” in one 24 hour period in May. Sever other days we got 3-5”. I literally have water standing in my yard and my pasture is a swamp. I’d like a couple weeks with nothing over 1/2” so we can dry out.

That's what we used to deal with, after a hurricane on the coast, when we lived there. The winds were never more than a bit over 100 mph, which did some damage, but the ridiculous amounts of rain, would cause the live oaks to start falling over a few days after the storm went through, up to about two weeks after the storm, we would still have trees falling over.

We live on the side of a fairly steep hill, we have never had standing water before, this deal, but we have lately. We have never had mosquitos in the past, that was nice. We got mosquitos everywhere now. There is very little to no standing water anywhere. But that was before the last storm that blew through, the other night, I think it was Friday night. I have gone outside quite a bit since, it's like the storm washed or blew 90% of the mosquitos away. Last week I went out in the yard for the first time in a couple of weeks, then went up to the feeder, there were huge swarms of mosquitos all the way back to the feeder and then back home. Today my wife and I spent most of the day in working in the yard, hardly got bit at all. I have never seen mosquitos that thick, just disappear, that quickly, naturally.

I’m really glad we are going into the summer with full lakes but I’m ready for things to dry out. Looks like it will be at least a week around here before that starts to happen

We’ve had a fairly wet spring. I didn’t track it too closely but I figure we had at least 12” in May. Luckily up here in Gods county, no mosquitos.

I thought that the weatherman said we were in a La Nina period which means we are usually dry...

A ton at our place in Mason and a whole lot in Georgetown. 2”+ since 830 this evening and it just started pouring again. Ranch has a big cell over it too. Deer should be fat and happy. Cows and giats(booooo) well fed. I get that folks are soaked. But man the drought times hit hard

I'm happy for the folks who have been needing the rain but we don't need anymore around here. It is pouring again now and it is forecasted to be wet for the next 6 days or so. We have guys that need to work and we are already 2 weeks behind from the recent rainy pattern. The 15-20" we had in May was enough for a while.
