I am very pleased to report that heavy rain fell over much of Texas and
Oklahoma this weekend for the first time in ages. Out of 794 Texas rain
gauge reports received for today (as of 11 PM this evening) more than
90% of the stations reported measurable precipitation. Furthermore, 70
CoCoRaHS volunteers in Texas reported over 4.00" of rain in the past 24
hours with a few stations up over 6". While these downpours caused some
flooding, they also caused celebration with rumors of dancing in the in the streets in some areas. We hear that the cattle were also dancing.
See PT, you just needed to go on vacation to bring the rain, or did you go to a rain dance?

I heard about that...I was worried about flooding, though. Too much rain in too short a time on too dry of ground isn't too good...

I wish for Texas a nice all-night soaking rain. No gulley-washers nor flash rains.

Unfortunately, we didn't get as much as some, but we are grateful for what we got. Maybe it will remove some of the fire danger in the area.
On our recent vacation road trip, we passed through the community of Bastrop (near Austin) and it was heart breaking. Just on the road we were on, we saw dozens of homes that had been burned to the ground and whole sections of piney woods gone. I heard there were over 100 lost.

I was devastated to see all the fires in the Bastrop area. We spent lots of time at the Boy Scout Camp Lost Pines in Bastrop. Really sad that so many folks lost their homes....
