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!!!

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....
