Your wish may be granted given long-term forecasts. Out over the oceans of the South Pacific our El Nino is turning into a La Nina -- basically that means that above average surface water temperatures have turned into below average surface temps. Those water temperatures tend to have an effect on weather across North American. With that being said - La Nina normally gives South Texas a Hot and Dry summer. But also by that token, it does yield an active Atlantic hurricane season. So don't be surprised that we sneak in a tropical system or two over the Texas Gulf Coast.

Any chance New Orleans gets another pounding?

Too early to tell but with an active Atlantic Hurricane season, anything is fair game.

These are definitely things that I do not wish to happen and my heart does go out to everyone who deals with these storms

Well, my heart might... if they weren't dumb enough to live below sea level.

Thanks Anthony....re: the insurance process went well, other than it took three weeks to get the car appraised. That particular storm took out a couple of car dealerships along I-35. It seems that the "nexus" of the hail hit right over the Outlet Mall in San Marcos. Every single car on the lot and every business in the mall was damaged to some extent. The Outback Steakhouse had the auto glass repair come to the restaraunt and fixed employee windshields on the spot. For some reason, my daughters car was at just the right angle to get the worst damage! LOL....what are the odds?? The leather interior was ripped in some places where the shards of glass busted through. She was able to get photos with her cell showing softball sized hail piled in the seats and floor board.....it was definitely not your average hail storm.

Then about three weeks later we had another storm (do you remember?) I think it was in June. It hit closer to San Antonio....and the NE side had to get all new roofing because if the damage!

I did get more rain last night....a wonderful thunderstorm and pretty heavy rain!!! It was great! I'm glad it was late at night....I hate driving in it!

Thanks for all the info Anthony!....except for the news about La Nina.....
The ag/farm industry is suffering terribly. Most people in the city don't realize how hard this dry weather is effecting crops and ranches through out Texas and other Southern states. I have several ranching friends who have had to sell off a lot of livestock because of the drought.

I remember both storms very well -- the power of mother nature is absolutely astonishing. It is something that we will never truly be able to control and something we will always have to adjust to.

We will see more heavy rain today and tomorrow -- almost a carbon copy of last night. Which is good news so long as people stay off the roads and use extra caution while camping. Two Women in Comal County lost their lives last night due to rising water.

This rain is definitely great news for the aquifer which is up at 663.3 feet (from yesterdays 661.9 feet) and it will continue to rise as the water seeps in. I bet there were parties going on at the ranches too since this was a widespread rain event.

There are more thunderstorms on the way across most of Bexar County as we have showers moving through portions of Atascosa and Frio Counties all moving to the Northeast at around 20MPH. Don't expect too much from these except for a brief heavy downpour, some thunder and lightning, and of course small hail cannot be ruled out.



And for those of you who are interested, here's a look at last nights rain totals across Texas. Man -- this is great




More updates to come as this system is finished with us quite yet.
