That Wacky (Sometimes Scary) Texas Weather

"Hurricane" Erin disintegrated over the Hill Country early this morning. But not before dumping massive amounts of rain on San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country. We were released from work early yesterday (which almost never happens due to weather or otherwise). By about 4:30pm (when I would ordinarily get off of work), the view out my patio looked like this:

At the time this picture was taken, we were getting 1 to 1.5 inches of rain an hour in my area. Some parts of SA got five to six inches of rain yesterday alone. Thankfully today has been drier and sunnier. The more we dry out now, the better we’ll be able to handle it if Dean makes landfall in Texas.
