Well, we got about 2.5 inches over the past 24 hours! I didn't notice hail, but could have slept through it.

Didn't get a chance to drop a little food coloring in the rain gauge yesterday. Can't quite read it through the damp windows. I'm guessing 2+ inches. Funny, at one o'clock in the AM, it looked like Houston was getting a break...not so in the past few hours. It must be REALLY wet down there!

Looks like a pretty good dousing 'upstream' from the lakes. Might not do much, but it's better than a poke in the eye!

travis is up about 6 inches. hydromet shows that the rain hit squarely over the entire basin. I would think the ground is already saturated so we should get most of it as runoff. The river report is saying stream flow isnt up much though.

Something I read said we would need 15 inches to get up to normal levels (about 40 feet). So based on that I would think the 2 inches we got should get us about 5-6 feet.

Good news. Looks like the basin isn't through yet! A few nasty cells still this morning up San Saba way. Austin might even get nicked for the next hour or so. My pup is waiting 'patiently' to go outside

We just had a thunderstorm, ending a few minutes ago, and my gauge is almost up to 3 inches. I'm going to the Nature Center to volunteer this morning, but I have to say, I'd rather stay in. The Weather Channel is showing on and off showers all day, so we'll see how much that amounts to.
