Went out to get the paper and had 1 inch at 7:30am
Went out at 10am and had 1 1/2 inches

I hope y'all are getting wet. We were on the edge of rain. I guess all the folks at the Ranger game and the Taylor Swift concert pulled it toward us.

rain is such a blissful sound

Just and put my indoor plants out. Wished I'd thought of that last night.

Weather stations close to me are reporting just under one inch in the last 24 hours.

Still raining at my house.............slowly, but allowing each precious drop to soak in. In fact, it is beginning to puddle in a few places, and that is a welcome sight. Now, to fill the pond..............

1.75" west of Austin. I collected 2000 gallons of water. I feel like a miser. I am sitting back feeling rich rich rich today. And I have socks and a sweater on!

We got over 6" . In my little dog's life she has never seen heavy rain. So, there's poop in the diningroom. For 6" of rain she can go where ever she wants.

It has stopped at my house, but still a possibility of more.........I will keep positive thoughts. I am so happy for those of you who are getting a goodly amount of rain. Woo-hoo !!!!

2 inches in the rain gauge when it stopped. Feels like more any time.

The rain barrel is overflowing. Bought a BIG plastic pot with no holes in it yet. Just happened to set it at the edge of the roof. It's full too.

I hope it gets to everyone.
