I just poured out a good four inches out of my trash cans when I came home. *fingers crossed this does something good*

Hopefully my boat is still there. First major storm for it being on a lift makes me nervous.

Check out the video I shot at Jones Bros park yesterday afternoon.  7.5" fell in Leander/Jonestown area causing quite the flood in the upper arm of Sandy Creek.

I have not put my rain gauge out on the fence but man it rained pretty hard out towards Bastrop last night.  Still wishing for more rain upstream.

Seems like south of Austin and east of 35 have no problem getting reasonable rain. Someone said it perfectly on here, Austin and upstream needs to lower its damn rain forcefield.
