For it to help alleviate the drought, it needs to be all over the State...not just Kyle and Houtson . A friend of mine in Brazoria posted some pictures while she was doing some shopping in Lake Jackson and it was raining so hard you couldn't see too far past her hood. Needless to say, I wish that much rain would have made it up here.

I cannot believe that line of storms to the east(keeping our doggie awake @ 2:50AM) that stretches well into LA. Still not a drop here at Avery Ranch . I like a good lightning show...just NOT at three in the morning .

Where we are in Hutto: in the middle of the night there was RAIN!! This morning I see it must have been enough to leave puddles. (I heard it raining last night but thought I was dreaming)

According to weather.com there was an 80% chance of thunderstorms in CP last night. I guess 80% means 0%.

I woke up to some lightning and some rain last night. The ground got a little damp out here in my part of RR. Anything is good! Hopefully there's more coming...

Still no rain in Steiner Ranch - at all. Got a few drops on my windshield Friday afternoon when picking up my daughter, but not even enough to turn on my wipers. Heard some thunder Saturday and yesterday, but not a drop. I keep seeing pictures of the "rain in Austin" on the news, but there's been no rain here .

Why is it that those who forecast weather are always so wrong about the rain? Several times in the last year, there has been a forecast for maybe 5 days of rain that has turned out to be nothing. I know this is an inexact science, but what is it about central Texas that makes rain so unpredictable?

It seems pretty predictable to me. There will not be rain. The chances of me being correct are 9X%. I'd say that's pretty high.

When it does rain and lightning please take precautions......my daughter lost all her TV's and receiver/recorder eguipment, computer and brand new washer and half her power to the house. They are renting and didn't have renter insurance. In hindsight they could have unplugged the high dollar stuff but didn't think of it.
