Clay soils have baked like bricks. Rainwater runs off easily at this point. I spent the summer digging my front lawn out to xeri, I can testify that at least 1/3 of the yard was clay brick under the dead grass. It's a PITA to dig that out manually. I got my summertime workouts.

Don't know when the next batch of rain shall arrive, but needless to say, I shall welcome it with open arms.

Drove around 1604 to La Cantera around 5-6 pm & there were a fair few drizzles here and there. I just washed the car last week! Hahaha!

Dallas is definitely soaked. I know this because I'm looking out the window at DFW.. where I hopefully won't have to spend the night. If I do, I definitely won't be alone. They're expecting about 1000 in this terminal alone.
