No, it's not over. I'm looking out for an ark. I think that may be the only answer to this mess!!

Hi seeing_eye :28

So sorry about your flooding and roof leaking. :( It is still major when it happens to you.

I agree. I just looked at the 10-day forecast for Fort Worth .. for trip planning. Lots more coming.
Love it for the farmers in west Texas, and at least no wild fires like in the past. Remember Possum Kingdom Lake several years ago?

Stay safe!

Prayers for both seeing eye and Molly . Do either of you have an opinion on the Ellis Dam ?

If I lived in the area I would head to high ground it looks like a very precarious situation to me, especially with more rain in the forecast, but I know zero about dams.

Hi Mal... and you KNOW all about water leaks in houses :give

For those who dont know.... Mal (lives in hurricane land - Florida) had HUGE problem(s) with leaky home.... mold behind wall linings... ripped out and never replaced, Insurance companies, lawyers, devious renovators etc etc.. and she eventually sold up her home..."as is" rather than pour more money (and worry and misery) into the place :doh

I clicked on the link to read and there was a police chase in Fort Worth, so that's what I have been watching for the past two hours. :eek

This lake is really small and it seems like the concern is minimal right now after installing the drain pipe (from other articles I've read). If I were in one of the 25 homes nearby in flood-risk, I'd be filling sandbags for sure. Our house is .8m from Benbrook Lake Dam, been there - done that ;)

Storms are now popping up in the area.

Carm ~ that was the link I clicked on but there was a huge LIVE banner across the top and I got distracted. :98 Storms don't look too bad in THAT area now.

Mal ~ I remember when you moved and you were having trouble selling your home. I had no idea of the reasons. So glad this is behind you now. I envy you living so close to the beaches but it would terrify me to live there because of hurricane season. My friend in DE says the same thing about me living in Tornado Alley :)

Thank you Lisa and Shordee! :28

The bad stuff has passed just "farmers rain" for a few more hours now.
It is suppose to be worse tomorrow then petering out over the weekend, I hope.

I love the rain and thunder, but not the lightening and tornadoes. :)

I'm where the marker is, outside, waving at y'all. :69

Prayers For Texas and Region – More Rain Anticipated This Weekend – President Declares “Major Disaster Area” For State Of Texas…
Posted on May 30, 2015 by sundance

Any readers in the area who are in need of assistance please send us an email and let us know what we can do to assist. We are praying for you all – according to the media weather reports much more rain is forecast for this weekend. Be Safe !!

President Obama has declared a federal disaster area in the State of Texas ahead of more anticipated rains this weekend.

    The National Weather Service said a strong cold front will move south and east over the weekend, bringing widespread rain and thunderstorms to much of the United States.

    The possibility of heavy rain and flash flooding exists because of unstable air and moisture coming from the Gulf of Mexico.

    “The already soaked soils of north Texas will be especially prone to flash flooding,” the weather service said.

    […] Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared a state of disaster Friday for another 24 counties, bringing the total under a state disaster declaration to 70. The move allows state resources to be used for storm response.

    “The large number of Texas counties currently experiencing a state of disaster is an indication of how severe this ongoing weather situation is,” Abbott said.

    Dallas County was not part of the governor’s declaration, but it, too, has been hit with heavy flooding. All lanes of Interstate 30 on the east side of Dallas were backed up because of flooding at the Route 12 underpass.

    Dallas city spokeswoman Sana Syed said the problem began at the start of morning rush hour, when the rain that had fallen overnight started accumulating in that spot.

Not even a teeny tiny bit, Lisa. :28

The office put a note on our doors this morning to be on the lookout for snakes. Several have been found curled up in people's garages. Now THAT may be something to worry about. Nah, they are just looking for a warm, dry place. :D

It's not too bad today. 65 now, nice. Got the window open listening to the birds talking :) .. when it gets to 81 later, things might start happening.

I googled Texas Flooding 2015 and have been looking at photos. Interesting but too many snake pics :eek

Found this site showing damage in Wimberly, TX, one of the hardest hit areas near the Blanco River. (no snake pics)
Note in the first photo, the river crested to 40 feet.

Thanks for everyone's well wishes. I believe Texas will begin to dry out now. I hope to get my roof fixed when it dries out enough.

I had one of those glue traps in my utility room to trap those ugly waterbugs. To me, they look like giant cockroaches. Well, it didn't catch a waterbug. It caught a snake!! (It was a small one.) I hope that's the only one.
