We picked up another 2 1/2 inches - giving us somewhere near 8 1/2 inches of rain for the 2 days. Rumor says we could get a bit more. Living on top of my hill & not at the bottom inside the creek bed - it is good...certainly better.
For those who don't know - in the Panhandle where I was raised, there are few creeks or no rivers. Instead water pools in low spots called Playa Lakes. When it rains a bunch out there, the little lakes become big lakes and cause problems. In Lubbock, South Plains Mall is built on one of these. They lose a big section of their parking lot after a monsoon.
Not so much here. We have creeks and rivers. The Richland-Chambers Lake is where the Richland Creek and the Chambers Creek meet as they rumble towards the Trinity River. It can get quite wet between here and the Trinity. I hear - no personal proof - that alligators live in the vicinity especially towards the River.
All is good. See ya,
