    Especially those who live near San Antonio, Fredricksburg, Bandera.. etc...

    Are you all right... I know you guys had Tornado Touchdowns last night..

    Uh, yeah, we're flooding over here too. Looks like the rain has slowed down...just a few scattered showers now. Now we have to watch out for the run-off from up north. Didn't have real high winds, but the lightening was Awesome!....lots of it, straight down from sky to earth and So Bright! At our house we got 6 inches. If it rains anymore before the creeks and rivers can calm down, we'll have to get the boat fired up. :)

    Hi Lynn,

    We're not from the south, rather the north of Texas, but my yard is completely flooded and the streets are full of water too.

    Verrrry wet here.

    It was bad for a while here in Angelina county, in deep East Texas. Still raining but not as hard as it was.
    Take care y'all Nan.

    OK here, but new sheep are growing webbed hooves.

    It's ok here. We had a tornado touch down at Lackland last night. Been under flood warnings etc. No schools in my immediate area closed though. It looks to be better now. It was a bit scary last night. We did live here during the flood of '98 and I just don't wanna go through that again.

    gauge. Sure am glad it stopped.
