    Got 6" overnight and been raining steady but no more downpours. Tried to get into Tyler but the main roads are closed and most back roads flooded. I am on high ground and sand so minimal problems at home

    I've been waking on water for the past few days when out walking the pooch. Park across the street is flooded in a lot of areas, the open sewer/drainage ditch looked like it'd be fun to take a canoe into, the water was raging. We were lucky, most of our walks were at times when it was lightly raining in between the downpours. We did get soaked though at least twice, worse for the dog than me though - when she started running to get home I knew she had had enough.

    I used to live on the outskirts of Corpus Christi that had been annexed into the city limits later. I had a pasture behind my house where we had a horse and some goats, and we had a swampy conservation area right behind. When it rained really good, the swamp would come right up to my back fence. One year it rained for about 40 days and 40 nights, give or take, and my whole pasture was flooded except for one little high spot right in the middle, about 10' in diameter, that my horse was standing on. One of my neighbors had teenagers that were canoeing from their back door out into the neighborhood and through the swamp. I paid them $5/day to canoe around to my back gate and feed my horse twice a day for 3 days. Once they couldn't get there by canoe anymore, I could walk out there in the slop so it worked out perfect.
