Rain, Rain, Go Away

Ok, so don't go away, just SLOW DOWN A BIT!

Emporer Misha has something to say about the rain in the DFW Metroplex this weekend, too.

Some parts of the Metroplex have seen between 1/3 and 1/2 of their normal annual rainfall in the past 48 hours.

Needless to say, IT'S FRIGGIN' WET OUTSIDE. Flash flooding is common, and possibly getting worse - there's another storm band headed this way later tonight. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if more resevoirs had to open spillways (or open them more), resulting in sending more water downstream, where there's already too much in many areas.

Of course, there are upsides - threat of brush & grass fires is now nearly nil (after just this past week having 800,000+ acres burned in W. Texas). And this should have also done a good job bringing resevoirs up to their normal levels, thus negating, or at least delaying, the need for water rationing later this year - something rather common during Texas summers around here.

I'll keep reminding myself of that tomorrow morning, when I WADE out to the truck to go to work.
