Wizard of Changes -- ©cdozo 2004 to 2015
It's sunny and clear now, but it rained about an inch here at my rent house last night. It rained much harder to the west, enough to make the LCRA, our local river authority, open some floodgates and let some of the flood water into our reservoir, Lake Travis. They say the lake level will rise about eleven feet. Lake Travis, is huge, so that will be a lot of water. Hopefully it'll keep raining once or twice a week, the lake will fill back up and the aquifer will get recharged. I doubt it, but it's nice to dream.
Here's some of the areas rainfall totals for the storm. These are from today's Austin American Statesman: Willow City near Fredericksburg is the rainfall leader over the past 24 hours with 6.38 inches. Sandy Creek near Kingsland had 5.94 inches during the same period. Burnet had 5.31 inches, blanco 5.13 inches and 4.95 inches at the Pedernales River near Fredericksburg.
