Ah...Texas Weather

We've been dry as a bone this spring; about one rain in the past two months or so and that rain was a month and a half ago.  We were eleven inches below our average rainfall.  Well, it has been raining here now for about eight hours straight.  And I don't mean sprinkling.  It has been pouring buckets for eight hours.  Yesterday the weathermen forecasted that we'd get about four to six inches...although, on their radar it looked like it would mostly be east of us.  Now they're forecasting that we'll get eight inches before the day is through. 

Our driveway is like a creek.

My patio is shedding the water nicely, but there's a low spot on the pathway.  The sod is just a little too high and is trapping the water on the stones.  Oh well, if that's the worse thing that happens, I think we can live with a low spot.
