Tropical Storm Lowell from the Pacific brought rain all over the Texas panhandle that brought extensive flooding, A State of Emergency was declared in Lubbock due to the extensive rain (8.7 inches in one day). So much rain it has been called a 100 year storm. Streets and area lakes were flooded with many of them the most I have ever seen, today (Friday) we got a break with sunshine and lakes have pumps to drain so the streets are drivable. No deaths but many stranded and flooded cars and homes. Our church and the house was unharmed. If any of you need water please come and get it for free. ROFL By the way year to date we are 11.02 inches ahead now!
