Major rainy day in Austin and surrounds. It seems there are two major
tropical storms pushing water up here and a cold front making it linger
over our metro area. Not up to the Great Memorial Day Flood of '81
proportions, but there are lots of flooded streets and streams. And the
outlook is not good right now. Onion Creek is the highest it's ever been
and expected to rise another 2 to 3 feet tonight. The Colorado River is
rising, albeit slowly.

40 to 41 feet projected for the Colorado River near Bastrop and the worst
flood on record is 37'.

I awaken at 2:30 to the steady sound of rain. It's pouring relentlessly
and there's nothing on the tube right now. Occasionally a lightning flash
punctuates the night, lighting up the pool of water in my back yard and
the overflowing swimming pool.

San Antonio is getting hit hard too. This central Texas area is the
hardest hit in the USA right now. We'll see what they say when the
weather teams come back on the air in the morning.

Got a leak in my bedroom ceiling. Slept while the rain blew in through the open window Friday night, so my carpet and desk were soaked. Carpet still hasn't dried out.

Plus, I need to get some repairs done on my vacant apartment before the new tenants move in, but this rain is just complicating everything. The carpet cleaners came Saturday and parked on my lawn in order to get close to the apartment. When they left, their tires left two giant troughs on the lawn - really tore it up. They suck. Good price, though. Did a good job, too, except for what they did to my lawn.

Why is it so wet outside? I can't understand it.
Everywhere I walk, it's just plain wet.
I've noticed some raindrops, too, falling out of the Austin sky.
It's a good thing we have the sky.
Boating has been very good from store to store.
Venice, it's been fun visiting you for a spell.

Still raining lightly. The house in Cedar Creek is shut off from the world
by an overflowing low water crossing. Mahalene is taking it in stride, and
so is Deanna.

Spoke with my parents who reside in San Antonio (and Houston -- long story, I'll share it later -- parents can be strange)
No work. No play.
Leon Creek flows right behind their backyard usually, now it's IN their backyard.
Lotsa people are dead.
Lots and LOTS of people have nothing left of their belongings.

Hope you are all safe and dry (and not contemplating an attempt to cross the low water crossings)

A day of respite today, the Colorado's still at an all time high and just
getting ready to peak around Lagrange.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Big cold front last Saturday afternoon with big fluffy white flakes.
Now it is about as cold as it ever gets in this part of Colorado -- 19 degrees!
(But it's a dry cold??)
Lotsa blowy white stuff, AKA 'powder'
I prefer the big fluffy white flakes.

It's cool here. I wouldn't call it cold. Some would. Having the heater
on is overkill.

"Under the anti-social capitalist, the great mass of the people
are victims of every kind of weather freak...the heat parches
them and saps their energy and health. Only in the Soviet Union,
where there is Socialism, are the rest, leisure and living
conditions of the people full provided for--these rights are
written into the Stalin Constitution."

So you can all keep track of your weather without going into Geo (I know it sounds forbidding, but there is good stuff in there...and it is not contageous!)

These maps update automatically so you can come back and check them and have them be current any time you download them here.

Sceptic systems have to be blasted into the lava here - do yours require that sort of excavation? All of the neighbors are warned about their houses shaking and their stemware shattering just before they do so...!

Dry cold is like Dry Heat? Better, somehow? That must be why they have a windchill factor (I put that on Geo 14 linked to News 32)...there should be a humidity factor map as well - or the Rheumatism factor! SO cold and so miserably damp but no snow to show for it?! Incredible. I am all symapthy!
