Well. Fences are holding. Still have 3 feet of freeboard at the big dam. Spillway barely passable. Don't dawdle. Lots of road closures and I have to be in Gatesville in two hours. Nice.

Yup. For the non-texans. Texas has 2 seasons. Drought and flashflood. This is the latter. Be safe.

Pretty much every low water crossing will be impassable today.We got 4.5 inches of rain. Maybe my tank at the farm will finally have some water in it.Rain is suppose to clear off and will make for a beautiful camping weekend
