Raining, pouring, texas is soaking

Story: "In North Texas, rains continued falling west of Fort Worth, and evacuations of about 300 homes were ordered in Parker County as the Brazos River began creeping into some backyards.

Firefighters and National Guard troops went door to door notifying residents of the mandatory evacuation, but some refused to leave, said Lt. Jason Williams of the Parker County firefighters' search and rescue team."

Yeah, thats about it. Really really wet, although we had a semblence of sunshine yesterday. Down yonder \/ is a video I took at my church, and it should give a decent example of the water.

How awful. When I was fishing in Arkansas this past May, it was flooding down there in certain places. Aside from the damage to homes and fields, it also brings the cottonmouths out to play. And THAT always makes me nervous!

Hope your home is high and dry.

Yup, my house is dry, thankfully.
Cottonmouths are no fun at all, unless there's a shotgun handy.

Paris is pretty bad, most of the state is soaked.
