Central Texas Floods

I live to the southeast of Austin -- about 40 miles. Roughly that far to the west of Austin people are being run out of their homes by flood waters. The Llano River crested 40 feet above flood stage yesterday. Our lakes are flooding their banks and setting all time records. They've got most of the flood gates open on the dams, and there will eventually be additional flooding farther down. Amazing.

It's a funny thing. I was raised in Seattle, and it seems it rained a lot, especially on weekends when we wanted to go someplace. Many decades later I lived in Houston, and my older brother would come down in the fall in his motorhome. I used to get on him about all the rain in Seattle, and one day he told me that it rained more in Houston than in Seattle. I had never thought about it. I got on the Internet and found that annual rainfall in Houston is nearly twice that of Seattle. Made a believer out of me.

Houston gets nearly 60 inches a year, and where I live close to the Hill Country we get a little over 40, still more than Seattle's 30. But it rains in Texas and stops. Most of the time it's sunny. My other brother who lives in Tacoma, WA, says that when it rains in Seattle you can walk out into it and not get wet. It's often that fine, and it can go on for days.

I lived through a devastating flood in 1994. Worst thing I ever experienced.

John, the Dallas area is near 47 inches for the year and 21 of that has fallen since Sept. 1. A little over 12 inches for Oct. so far.
