today is the first in weeks that I saw a sunrise here in central TexAss. At least we live on a hill. Lake Brownwood was 4 feet over the spillway and it almost came over the banks of the Pecan Bayou. If that would have happened it would have started flooding the town. We still have rain in the forcast but it's a lot less than it was.

Here in SW Oklahoma, I don't remember this much rain, torrential downpours, or flooding llike this in about 20 years. I told everybody I was trading my car in for a canoe LOL! I took a lot of awesome photos, though, I'll post some of them on my profile....Thankfully, I live on a slight incline in the country, right next to the Wichita Mountains, so we were not flooded out, but the areas all around us made travel on the clay dirt county roads almost impossible. So far, no rain for the past two days, but the flooding is receding very slowly. Peace....
