I need some rain on a lot of this place - Saturday we had over an inch at the house, 2 miles down hill in the main big pasture (rangeland) we got 11/100ths. I still have feed, can survive on it for another year, but I need some ponds filled. Can't water entire herd until next July or August on one well.

Our year to date amounts are less than we normally get in just July and August.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Tropical Storm Imelda has been downgraded to a tropical depression after making landfall Tuesday afternoon near Freeport. The storm formed at about midday, roughly 15 miles south of Freeport in the Gulf of Mexico.

The main threat from the storm will be extremely heavy rain leading to extensive street flooding, and possibly creek and bayou flooding if it lasts into Thursday.

Our latest forecast calls for 6-12" of rain with isolated spots over 20" along and east of the center's path.

Been steady rain since 2AM, if it keeps this up I will be on an island.
Looks like the really heavy stuff for now is east on the border.

We have not had a significant rain in about a month. None is forecast for the next 10 days either. I may have to start feeding some hay.

I hope for y’all.
Watching radar today looks like it has moved farther east than earlier predictions.

Baytown?
A niece of mine lives in Baytown and she says they do have some street flooding.. A tornado has been reported in Mont Belview at 5:14 or 7 miles NE of Baytown moving East at 20mph. That would take it toward Cove/Winfree i believe..probably already there..

My own area has had steady rain almost non-stop with heavy rain interspersed, but not terribly hard like it was in the predawn hours. My rain gage shows 8".

River on the edge of my property will be coming up.
