  • We finally received some rain from Dolly. The storm hit the Texas coast near Brownsville midday yesterday and brought a lot of wind and rain to that area (the news said she reached a catagory two by the time she made landfall). Our rain finally came this morning, but not a whole lot. More rain is expected for the rest of today and this evening.

  • It's been hotter than blue blazes in north Texas for about two weeks. And we've had no rain to speak of for a month or so. Naturally these conditions are not helping the plant life here. All my wife's diligently-tended flowers are dying, even though she waters them quite often.

  • We survived Hurrican Dolly. Starting late Tues-then all night through all of Weed, and till at least noon today, we have had winds up to hurricane strength blow through our area as well as about 15-20 inches of rain.

    Last night, a small Tornado touched down in the vacant lot next to my Bro-in-law and Sis house-where im staying tomporarily untill about mid-late Aguust-since my surgery is about to happen. Anyway, at about 3:45 AM, I heard what sounded like two shotgun blasts happen right outside my window-and then heard a roar (which could have been that tornado) and then at about 4 AM, I heard a sickening sound of something metal, twisting and warping through the air-which hit the side of the outside wall-from where I was trying to sleep. Next it scraped up some shingles off the roofas it flew off the roof and landed against a tree in the front yard-and was wrapped about the tree like tinfoil.

    This morning we saw how lucky we were. Three large trees in my Sis yard shattered.

  • With the cloudy skies today, we were kept down with the temperatures in the upper 80's. Very unusual for July. Didn't see any rain either. But we are still very sticky with the humidity, wish it was fall.

    Cheers :cool:

    We got some rain and winds from Hurricane Dolly. A mile from us, a brief tornado touched down in an area I frequently travel. It caused a lot of damage, mostly minor, and no one was injured.
    I think our street had something blow through. My next door neighbor's trash can (the kind the garbage trucks lift up with mechanical arms) was in our yard on its side. But the folks across the street lost four substantial limbs on their big front yard tree and had five places on their roof where shingles blew off!
    Could have been a small tornado that was just skipping around. We did receive about an inch and a half of rain from the storm system. I guess we were pretty lucky not to have it worse!

  • we have hit the magic 40% mark for the dams which means that level 6 has been lifted, we can now wash the cars with a hose instead of a bucket of water, they say we could have more rain and it is cooler only going to the high teens dueing the day and low single figures at night

    cheers smokey

  • Hi all,

    No Hurricane or Tornados here thank god,
    Good to hear that you guys are alright.
    just a wee bit of sunshine and about 21c.

    Emmanuel.

  • Man were we hot, humid and hazy today! We were shy the century mark by 1 degree, but the heat index was over 110F. And the skies were hazy today. It was so hot that I almost died. We are suppose to get some rain by Thursday, but it was a tough day today.

    I wish it was a month later. Just need a little cooler weather. How long until winter?


    Cheers :cool:

  • Hot, up to 30C,



    I have to chuckle when Europeans characterize 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celcius) as "hot". We Texans wish it never got more than 86 degrees in our state.

    Where I live, we've had temperatures around 106 degrees Fahrenheit (41.1 degrees Celcius) for the past 3 weeks and there's no relief in sight for the next couple of months. Now that's truly hot.
