    Y'all take good care up there. We had some north of us here, but most stuff kinda fizzled out in the DFW area.

    50 to 60 mile mph winds? That's a calm day in Oklahoma. "Whatcha frettin for sugar"? Get in the "fraidy hole" until it blows through.:09:

    I think we're pushing 30 inches of rain so far this year. The rivers are bank-full and any more rain will cause more flooding. We got 4.78 inches last Friday. My backyard is so full of frogs that I have to collect them before I mow. :09:
     
  13. Curiously, . . .

    . . . . those of us in the Texas Panhandle (traditional tornado alley)
    are seeing fewer big storms as this year the alley seems to be
    moving to the east.


    Good luck.

    Y'all be careful and hope things work out. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights here last year in June--didn't need an ark but the lakes were pretty full. Some flooding, but the Corps of Engineers did the best they could letting the water out down the Brazos and Trinity. Take care--the storms are now somewhere east of us here. Might have your kit ready just in case....

    Yeah, Lake Texoma was going over the spillway and that's with all the gates open.

    Possum Kingdom was T+G for a bit (letting out the dam, etc), but it worked out in the end. We're on fairly high ground for the region here, but I did find the website where the COE posts the lake levels and water flow #'s.

    I do think they did a pretty good job given the situation, though. We did have our stuff ready just in case.

    Which is worse CGO? Ground that shakes or wind that circles? There's just no place to hide is there?
