Travis just hit 40% full for the first time in about three years. I'll take too much every time. It will eventually drop. Some people just like to complain and you can't help those types.

When it's been dry for so long and most of the lakes were at all time lows it's a little hard to take someone complaining. When you live as long as I have you've seen the ups and downs and believe me I'll take the ups anyday. You can stay on higher ground, and just don't build in a flood plain and too much water won't bother you.

I know you need rain, we do not need rain here, our rain does you no good, our rain is doing us more harm than good because our lakes are over pool, I really hope South and West Texas get the rain that they need.

Lake Palestine Boat Ramps - Checked out Lake Palestine Resort (was M&M Campground)
ramp. The wooden pier is almost under water. Boats were being launched from
the south ramp. Most vehicles had both sets of wheels in the water to launch.
Villages - again, both sets of wheels.

I farmed for forty years in Texas and we had a saying, "YOU CAN LIVE WITH THE RAIN,,,,YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT".

Until ALL of Texas has benefited from abundant rainfall, including All of Central Texas, All of far west Texas, All of North Texas, and All of the Panhandle, I'm just saying to the prediction of more rain,,,,BRING IT ON. We can handle it.

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

Stillhouse was something around 10 feet high 7 or 8 years ago now it's still 13 feet low even after all this rain. Be happy with you can get there's no guarantee what the future will hold and water consumption will continue to rise. I feel for the flooded people but just like folks in hurricane rich areas it comes with the territory.

The rains haven't been that widespread, and there are a lot of lakes in west, central and south Texas that still need water and some are still mudholes as the rain has hit in pockets and totally missed those watersheds.
It's a case of some getting more than their share and others getting nothing.
A large tropical system is usually the answer, but we all know what that means and it's usually not good for those caught in the bullseye.
