so funny to watch all these predictions and how quickly they change.

and look where it finally hit the coast - right at matagorda island. ~100mi south of houston.

Okie Boarder, looks like not really. Some areas showing around an inch, but that's about the highest number from Austin that I see from Wunderground.

nope - we got a really hard rain for about an hour around noon and some showers last night, but bill did an excellent job of avoiding population centers and skirted between austin/houston.

We've definitely had more than our fair share. I am thankful we haven't had much heat yet this year, as a result.

i don't think we'll get to full this summer. we've filled the deep channel area so the rest of the way will take so much more total volume to move the needle upwards.

we only added 1.5" in the last 24 hours w/ all the watershed runoff.


Hmmm, you may have to eat those words. Unbelievable how high it has gotten...40' since it started really coming up.

not sure why you would say that. travis has risen 1" in the past 19 days, is 9.5" and 15% from full. it's also the dead of summer - not spring storm season.

We have a H sitting over Texas right now. There is zero rain for pretty much this week and possibly all of next.

I saw that during one of the boat shows. They had just the small outside bar open. Not the main building.

I flew over all of the LCRA lakes last weekend. Was surprised to see some things underwater that shouldn't be on Travis.

The water levels are out of control! I want to head over to the Hula Hut to see how crazy the water level is. Never thought we would be back to Over full levels.
