      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Here's a linkto watch for yourself. If you can't easily figure ou7t how to view the rainfall, radar, stream flows, and lake levels and a whole lot of other stuff click on the "site tour" in teh upper left hand corner of the map.

 

 

The ground is already pretty wet from teh last few weeks of gentle rains.

 

 

 

Average rainfall of each inch over the entire LBJ basin after the first inch will put another five feet in Lake Travis.

 

 

The Pedernales Basin probably needs two inches average over its entire area to dump five feet in Travis.

 

 

 

So watch the site and root for 8 inches everywhere so we can have a full lake for the event below!!!

phooey darn. it seems to be moving east and north way way too fast. There are a couple areas with over 3 inches since a couple hours ago but the big red nasty radar splotch pattern is shrinking and leaving the watershed.

Three inches of rain in the last three hours at the LBJ ranch and golfball sized hail. That s torm is aimed at my shop and hopefully falling apart before it gets here.

 

 

 

Anyway this is a chance to remind folks of what Lyndon said in response to "What's it like being President in times like this/"

 

 

 

LBJ said, "Sometimes it's a lot like being an ass in a west texas hail storm. You just gotta stand there and take it."

 

 

It wasn't until 2005 I finally saw wahrt the heck he was talking about. We sat in my van and huddled under towells to avoid splattering glass and our hands over our ears because teh sound was deafening.

When it stopped, the one inch hail stone slurry was six inches deep around the van and every single tree was 100% stripped of all its leaves. The small branches were broken off and every single west side window on every house in the neighborhood was without its glass.

 

 

 

 

 

And, as our priorities were straight, we sailed in the morning....
